Artist Profile: Hurricane Bells
Hurricane Bells, the brainchild of Steve Schiltz, produces a variety of musical sounds. "I Can't Remember," with its distorted, watery "la la's", and the somber, down beat tom tom drums and lean, muscular guitars of "The Winter's In New York," embrace an evocative, other-worldly pop sound.
Gentle, winding guitar bends mark the mid-tempo "Freezing Rain," the soft, driving drums conjure up images of a train swiftly moving along, providing an escape from the past to the future. The melodic rocker "Monster" shows Schiltz can turn up the volume when needed, while the cover of The Shirelles classic "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow," a duet with Scout's Ashen Keilyn, reveals a romantic side.
