Yesterday, with the help of a friend, I was introduced to my new favourite band. 2009 has been a funny old year for me and new bands, nobody has really grabbed me instantly on first listen…until now.
Sleigh Bells are a duo from Brooklyn made up of a primary school teacher and ex member of hardcore outfit, Poison the Well. Intrigued already? You should be because what they produce is beyond description. The distorted drums will burst your eardrums, but at the same time you’ll find yourself humming along with the instantly catchy melodies.
Seriously, for me, Sleigh Bells are one of the most exciting bands I’ve heard in years.
If this track doesn’t convince you then you’re already deaf.
