Sleigh Bells Are Rocking

Brooklyn duo Sleigh Bells ditches run-of-the-mill riffs to create the perfect potion of pop and electro-rock, with vocalist Alexis Krauss and guitarist Derek Miller crafting their own distinctly distorted sound. The above song, “A/B Machines,” is one of few that can be found on their MySpace, in addition to “Crown on the Ground,” “Infinity Guitars,” and the steadier, more melodic “Ring Ring.”

If the sound of Sleigh Bells is candy to your ears, keep an eye out for the debut of their first LP, Treats, which is set to drop on May 11. To whet your appetite, their lead track, “Tell ‘Em,” is available for free download from Sleigh Bells’ website! They will also be performing at the Pitchfork Music Festival on July 18.

With May right around the corner, will you be marking your calendars for the release of their first LP?

    That guitar part is really cool, and I dig the beat. But the distorted sound is playing with my head! I keep turning the volume down in my headphones, but the scratchiness is still there. Haha.
