Default The Howling Bells

I've heard their single 'Wishing Stone' and I think it is pretty decent. Anybody else heard of them? What do you think?

You can listen to the song on their site Here

Yeah I saw it on MTV2 about a week ago, great stuff. I don't normally like the new bands they show but this one seems very decent. You heard any other material by them?

i know they have the debut coming out very soon if it isnt already out now ,called liberation. ive also heard songs called velvet girl and low happening which pretty much adhere to the formula of low, brooding bass lines + frenetic, jangly guitar + sultry vocals = pretty decent music.

You can download Blessed Night here and I have just listened to Low Happening on their myspace. Both good songs as well.

Apparently Liberation is out in April.

there alright..
i'm strange tho.. for some reason i'd rather male singers... there's not many bands out there i like with female singers.. although this chick really does have a pretty nice voice..
