School of Seven Bells
"I L U"
The "L" stands for loved and this dollop of dream-pop from New York trio School of Seven Bells perfectly captures all the sadness and heartache that past-tense verb implies. Over a rippling layer of keyboards and a gentle, surging backbeat, singers Alejandra and Claudia Deheza apply their angelic voices to lyrics about lost love and blown opportunities. It's a rich, moody weeper — the ethereality of the Cocteau Twins fused with the steady, electronic pulse of M83.
