MUSIC: Sleigh Bells

The initial meeting between Derek Miller and Alexis Krauss of Sleigh Bells sounds almost like a scene out of a movie: He was working at a Brooklyn restaurant during the summer; she, a fifth grade public school teacher, was one of his customers and by chance they started talking about music. A mere week later they were recording together and thus, Sleigh Bells were formed.

“everything starts with and revolves around a beat; vocal melodies and guitar lines sometimes reinforce a kick pattern” ~Derek Miller

So the duo’s fun synth rave-ups become way blurrier and more intense than you’d expect, while Krauss grounds everything with cool sass. It’s quite a package.
