Sleigh Bells debut LP will be out in about 2 weeks and the new single off the album (beyond “Infinity Guitars,” “Crown on the Ground,” and “A/B Machines”) just dropped. I love the track. The hip hop beats are there in full force, the overdrive on the guitars and a gushy pop sound, but with a “cleaner” overall feel.
This is grunge re-imagined by people that don’t live in the rain 80% of the year and received several gold stars in kindergarten.
Sleigh Bells – “Ring Ring”
Schuyfi was talking about these guys a few weeks ago. They’re a Brooklyn based band and they’re pretty interesting. The best description I’ve heard is MIA meets Swizz Beatz cranked to 11. So listen and enjoy this live set Better yet, get some good headphones and dance with yourself in the dark. No, that’s not a bad recording of the performance, it’s supposed to sound like that.
“Crown on the Ground” (Turn the volume down for this one)
And for a bonus, listen to “Ring Ring” (Crank the volume up for this one)
YDP brings you Sleigh Bells, the unsigned fast growing sensation out of Brooklyn is playing at Andrew W.K.’s Santos Party House
tonight with The Very Best.
Kindof like a rock and roll Crystal Castles but instead of video game sounds they stick some intense guitar grooves and fuzz.
Not quite the Sleigh Bells you grew up with
Basically Crystal Castles and The Prodigy had a baby that was raised by Beck. Based on my experience watching Crystal Castles
live I imagine that Sleigh Bells puts on an impressive show.
This can second as your weekly shot of energy.
