TRACK REVIEW: Sleigh Bells – “Comeback Kid”

Written for DIY

Not that they were particularly reserved before, but noise-pop duo Sleigh Bells are really going for it now. The guitars are blaring through a wall of Marshall stacks, Alexis Krauss’ vocals are higher and more focused; and the pop side has been jacked up, too, with the sort of stuttering electronic drum line you expect to here in the more club-friendly Drake R&B and a repeating keyboard motif that you’ll be whistling for weeks. Expect more from new album Born To Lose, due next month, described by the band as “the sonic equivalent of a beautiful shotgun to the head.”
