Biography

New York's Ravens & Chimes make music for cities that never sleep and the people that inhabit them, songs for late nights gone awry and early mornings spent picking at warm bowls of regret. 2007's Reichenbach Falls earned comparisons to the Arcade Fire and drew notice from Leonard Cohen and Jeff Mangum; Holiday Life might get Dylan's attention. It would be ... Read more in Amazon's Ravens & Chimes Store

Editorial Reviews

Grown from the halls of NYU, Ravens & Chimes' debut introduces a youthful, optimistic lightness in the form of eclectic, ear-grabbing tunes. CMJ called "beautiful" and "unique", evoking comparisons at times to either Wolf Parade or Voxtrot - a sound urging youth to grow up to be young again - no justifications necessary. Lead vocalist Asher Lack repeatedly asks himself "Is It Possible to change withoput abandoning the person you were?" REICHENBACH FALLS ecompasses the raw quality of youth in a split open-heart combination of fire lust, dissapointment and self-doubt.

Format: Audio CD
If you took the musical richness of Arcade Fire, mingled in the literate lyrics of the Decemberists, and a bit of freakfolk... you might have something like Ravens & Chimes.

And it's the sum sound of the Brooklyn band's first album, "Reichenbach Falls" -- a cascade of swirling, energetic indiepop flavoured with melancholy folk. While they're still growing into their sound, the band's polished instrumentation and hauntingly literate songs are the stuff of indie-rock dreams.

It begins with a haunting guitar strum and a trickle of gentle piano, which suddenly erupts into a swirling, mournful epic of twilight indiepop. Asher Lack sings tremulously about a flood wasteland: "And if the waters rise up/and drown the whole city/and all the houses where we live/are shimmering lights beneath... and to all the saints who drowned in the sea/I am still here with you..." Wow. You don't quite realize how dark that song is, until you listen carefully to the words.

It also sets much of the mood for the album -- the rippling piano-pop "January" sounds very cheerful, until you realize that it's the crumbling of a bittersweet relationship. From there, the band explores quiet acoustic ballads, energetic retro pop with some really colourful synth, and some swirling, haunting indie-rock in the Arcade Fire vein.

That brand of indie-rock is what they really are brilliant at -- some of the highlights include the ghostly, elusive "...and I Came Upon It in the Clearing," and the bouncy music-hall-style "General Lafayette! You Are Not Alone," which changes at the end to an autumnal, wistful little instrumental.

If "Reichenbach Falls" sounds pretty mind-blowing... well, it is.

This is a great album -- what a talented bunch of people. I think I love them and want to spend the rest of our lives together. Is it possible to marry a whole band?
