School of Seven Bells found its name watching a PBS show about an alleged South American pickpocket academy, so that should give music heads an idea of what the Brooklyn-based trio is about. Ex-Secret Machines guitarist Benjamin Curtis, along with sisters Claudia and Alejandra Deheza make a brand of futuristic pop that’s tough to pin into any one genre, though a just-announced tour with shoegaze master M83 seems like an apt fit. The band will hit the road at the end of this month, following the release of its “Half Asleep/Caldo” single, which drops September 16.

Following that, SSB’s debut full-length, Alpinisms, will drop on Ghostly Ocotber 28.
