School Of Seven Bells 'Signals' by Daniel Ryan
Daniel Ryan's video for School Of Seven Bells' Signals employs themes of escape and healing, while paying tribute to late band member Benjamin Curtis. Taken from the band's final album SVIIB, it features the band's Alejandra Deheza both dancing passionately on her own, and becoming clinically dismantled, like a doll, while Curtis's guitar remains untouched.
Deheza told Noisey, where the video was premiered: "Signals is a 100 percent love song to all of the music that woke us up as kids – that woke us up to the fact that music wasn’t other, that it was in our blood, that got us stalking record stores, sneaking into 21 and over shows, obsessing over Melody Makers in the public library, listening through radio countdowns (Power 96 MIA!) just to get to THAT song, the thrill of getting to play with our heroes—a total mixtape of love and thank yous. Favorite moment on the record.
"Making a video for this was a definite from its first day in the studio. Daniel [Ryan] was in LA working on a film, so we grabbed dinner. I remember he asked me, ‘If you could make a video for any song on this record, what would it be?’ I didn’t even have to think about it."
