Bells Atlas 

When: Fri., June 14, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $7, $10

Oakland's self-described "Afro-indie soul" group Bells Atlas draws from a wide range of influences, including hip-hop, samba, R&B, indie rock, and pop, to craft its unique, lush sound. Nigerian-American lead vocalist Sandra Lawson-Ndu's smooth, sensual voice twinkles, lilts, and lifts, anchored by polished guitar stylings and steady drum beats. The band's music captivates and bewitches with a balance of jazz and pop beats, invoking good feelings and the urge to move. The band sounds even better live, which is why you should check out its upcoming show, which will celebrate the release of its debut self-titled album, at The New Parish (579 18th St., Oakland), along with seven-piece Bay Area band The Seshen, whose own dreamy vocals, mix of live and electronic instrumentation, and Afro-Caribbean vibes will serve as a perfect introduction. With DJ Treat-U-Nice
