Music Takes Me

Songfacts®:

  • School of Seven Bells' Benjamin Curtis died of T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma on December 29, 2013. The group's final album, SVIIB, was released two years later in February 2016. Though his bandmate, Alejandra Deheza, wrote this song after his passing, she doesn't see the project as a eulogy. The singer told GQ: "I understand and I appreciate it. If it's that for people to find closure, I totally appreciate that. But when I see this record, I see that creative blast was there with this person I shared my life with for ten years. It's a celebration to me personally."
