Bells

The eerie sound you can hear on “Hotspot” at the end of “Happy people” and at the beginning and end of “Wedding in Berlin” is the bells of the church of St Matthias in Goltzstrasse, Berlin. Neil recorded them on his phone while crossing nearby Winterfeldplatz. Stuart Price took a part of the recording and put it through a digital effect. Link below to a video clip of the bells.
