Northern Bells is a five piece indie-rock outfit hailing from Brooklyn via Ohio, Portland, and Maryland. A reincarnation of the fledgling post-punk collective In Cadeo, Northern Bells is a prevailing variation of autumnal indie pop & Americana, not unlike contemporaries Interpol, The National, Arcade Fire, and The Anniversary.
Comprised of members of past, present, and future Brooklyn/NYC bands (Oberhofer, The Hold Steady, Demander, The Spies), their sound fuses elements of poppy rock, modern grunge, and lo-fi sensibilities with addictive melodies that often build to epic crescendos.
The assured baritone lyricism and smart songwriting skillfully alternates between brooding and anthemic to create a decidedly intimate listening experience as showcased in the dual 7" releases: Wake Up & Elephant - both co-produced by Girls Against Boys' Eli Janney (The Soft Pack, Ryan Adams, Wilco).
Northern Bells' debut full-length record Keep it in the Dark hits the streets at the end of 2012.
