Marty Duda's artist of the week: Howling Bells

From Nine To Noon, 11:06 am on 10 September 2014

Now based in London, Howling Bells are originally from Sydney where they were formed in 2004. The quartet features vocalist Juanita Stein and her brother, guitarist Joel Stein. The band incorporates elements of shoegaze, Americana and electronica into their shimmering, if somewhat hazy pop stylings. After a hiatus, during which time Juanita became a mother, the band returned this year with their fourth album, Heartstrings. Howling Bells will be performing at Auckland's Tuning Fork this coming Saturday. 1.
