Author: Sleigh Bells
The duo that forms Sleigh Bells met while one was waiting on the other at a restaurant. Fast forward and they are creating buzz-worthy noise pop with overdriven guitar riffs and sugary female vocal melodies. The album’s immediate popularity and the band’s reputation as an energetic live act have helped solidify the duo’s widespread popularity.
The New York City duo known as Sleigh Bells emerged in the Fall of 2009 with rhythmic pop songs that combine overdriven guitar riffs and sugary female vocal melodies. Derek Miller, who played in the popular Florida hardcore outfit Poison the Well, teamed up with singer Alexis Krauss after he happened to serve her and her mother at a Brazilian restaurant in Brooklyn. As proof of their winning formula, Sleigh Bells quickly earned the adoration of critics at the New Yorker, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and the Village Voice. They are celebrated by both their hometown’s outer-borough lo-fi rock scene and international pop acts like Major Lazer and MIA, who collaborated with Derek on her forthcoming third LP.
