Sleigh Bells, one of the most exciting new acts to break out in 2010, are known for their chaotic, ecstatic, noisy-as-f*** anthems. On their debut album, Treats, Derek Miller and Alexis Krauss brought the ordered insanity with tracks like “Infinity Guitars,” creating a heavenly din that sounded like M.I.A. fronting AC/DC (MIAC/DC?).
Below we have a sneak peek at Sleigh Bells’ new video for the track “Rill Rill.” And it presents an altogether quieter, gentler band.
“Rill Rill” is a sun-kissed, mid-tempo, driving song that calls to mind the lazy, psychedelic pop of The Flaming Lips. Fittingly, the sneak peek of the video reveals a road trip theme, as Derek and Alexis cruise down the highway, letting their hands coast on the air out the windows, taking life one mile at a time.
Check out the video sneak peek of Sleigh Bells’ “Rill Rill.” The full-length video premieres on MTV.com on Thursday, January 27. Sleigh Bells’ Treats album is out now.
