It seems apropos that Sleigh Bells gorgeous front lady, Alexis Krauss, appear in a publication called Complex since that’s a good way to describe the Sleigh Bells sound… at once brash metal riffery and bubblegum pop hooks, scuzzy electro production and Krauss’ angelic vocals. The Brooklyn duo have put out one of the year’s most exciting releases with their debut Treats and we are looking forward to hearing them play it very very loud when the band are in Australia for a heap of dates in early 2011 – including Field Day, Summafieldayze, Falls Festival, Sunset Sounds and Southbound.

Like I said, Complex did a recent shoot with Alexis for their October/November 2010 issue. Photography by Selina Arban; (Stylist) Katherine Erwin; (Hair and Makeup) Angela Dicarlo using M.A.C. Cosmetics.
