School of Seven Bells - "Half Asleep" (video)

by Alan Ranta

I think Ghostly International described the latest video from 2008’s Alpinisms best themselves:

“In School of Seven Bells music, a human element lurks behind a veil of technology and noise; Toby Holbrook’s video for the Brooklyn trio’s ‘Half Asleep’ follows suit, depicting real-life twin vocalists Alejandra and Claudia Deheza as earthbound beauties, while complicating their image through sped-up film, gauzy overlays, and brightly colored, weather-like disturbances. The clip conjures a sad, surreal feeling that sticks with you long after the images fade.”
