“Heads up…the new video for “Riot Rhythm” is an unofficial fan video,” Sleigh Bells announced on their Twitter on Thursday. “Pretty badass though!”
Badass indeed. Director Bo Mirosseni, the guy behind distinctive ads for Starburst, Ball Park Franks and Virgin Mobile, has graced the Brooklyn duo with a super cool music video, inspired by Karate Kid. Read what Pitchfork has to say about the awesomeness here, and watch the full video below!
The London gig on August 7th was reviewed on Drowned in Sound:
"Bathed in hellish red lighting as beads of sweat drip from our brows, Sleigh Bells’ Alexis and Derek take the stage to thunderous death metal, looking like two championship boxers entering the ring for the final slugs in a knock out match. Alexis, eyes the crowd through her cat like glare throughout the soaring stars and stripes riff of ‘Tell ‘Em’. Although, the sound suffers as the OBL’s battered PA robs it of some of its impact, the building decibels of ‘Infinity Guitars Throws’ cuts straight through and finally gets the crowd moving. ‘A/B Machines’ ranks ups the momentum as Alexis flicks water into the crowd as a mini mosh pit erupts."
