Currently Listening: Sleigh Bells


I started listening to Sleigh Bells two years ago when my friend Lindsay introduced the Brooklyn noise pop duo to me, but I admit that I haven't had a listen in a while. That's why I think it was fate that as I was chatting with Lindsay the other day, this song popped up on my Pandora. Yup, definitely fate. Sleigh Bells have put out two studio albums, Treats in 2010 and Reign of Terror in 2012, with Treats remaining my pick of the two. Their music hits hard, it just feels louder and bigger than other songs in your playist. But this juxtaposes beautifully with Alexis Krauss' demure vocals. Give a listen to the treack "Rill, Rill" from Treats below and let me know what you think!

  1. I really like it! I heard them at the Pitchfork festival at Chicago last year and they were definitely a memorable act. I always listen to their songs before going out haha, it gets me in that mind set

    1. Oh, awesome! I wanted to see them last summer when they came to Philly, but no such luck. And I agree, their music is great for getting ready to go out!

  2. I will be at PukkelPop festival this summer and I wish so badly to see them in the line up! So so badly!

    This song is for air waving outside the car's windows while traveling. ONLY! :)
