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 M.I.A., who collaborated with Derek on her forthcoming third LP.
Sleigh Bells spent the first two months of 2010 at Treefort Studios in Brooklyn re-recording the demo tracks that had generated so much excitement in the previous year. They’ve also added a handful of new songs to round out their debut record, due out Spring/Summer 2010. Tours with Yeasayer and Major Lazer, including dates at South By Southwest, Coachella, Pitchfork, and Primavera Festivals, have been announced for the first half of 2010.
