Video Premiere: Sleigh Bells, ‘Rill Rill’

On Monday we showed you a stylish sneak peek of “Rill Rill,” the new video from Sleigh Bells. And today we have the official video premiere.

As we mentioned in the previous post, “Rill Rill” is a lazy, sunny psychedelic kiss from the duo, and it stands in stark contrast from their usual, awesome, shouty, electro-punk bursts of noise.

We had thought we were in for a similarly warm and fuzzy video to go with the song, but, man, were we wrong. “Rill Rill” finds Sleigh Bells singer Alexis Krauss in full bad-girl mode, throwing her bloodied bandmate, Derek Miller, out of a moving car and returning to an abandoned high school where she poses for some chilling and provocative yearbook photos.

The video actually goes perfectly with the dark undertones of this sonically bright song. Check out Sleigh Bells’ “Rill Rill” video, below. Sleigh Bells’ Treats album is out now.
