Both Throssell and Moss had played in various outfits before, Moss most notably having done time with Mercy Arms, touring with The Strokes, Pixies and The Horrors, and Throssell with Diamondback Rattler both playing shows around and across Australia in the late 2000's. Searching for new opportunities they relocated to London in mid 2012, where they completed the line up with drummer Luke Richardson of 1965 Records band The Draytones. Dark Bells spin a beguiling web of haunting yet melodic sounds built on the bricks of post-punk with the atmosphere of an act you might have found on 4AD in 1983. Their focus is creating a truly unique sound inclusive of soundscapes underneath Throssell's vocals.
