The New Sleigh Bells Song Sounds Just Like Sleigh Bells

Posted By on Wed, Sep 4, 2013 at 12:30 PM

The first time I heard Sleigh Bells I told my wife they sounded like Andrew WK composing music for a cheerleading competition (that was before I'd seen the cover of their debut album, a retro-ish photo of cheerleaders), a description that doesn't always hold up, but does sort of get to what you can usually expect from the band. Their music is blaring, loud and built on deconstructed hard rock riffs and beats seemingly lifted either from 90's era DMX tracks or Florida speed metal records. Anyhow, the first song from their forthcoming third album sounds exactly like what I expect from Sleigh Bells and in a weird way, that's oddly comforting.
