Noisy Treats: Sleigh Bells

The Sleigh Bells album “Treats” is well named, a genuine noisy musical treat: it sounds like many things you have heard before and at the same time like nothing you have ever heard before. Big anthemic rock beats, pop diva vocals, and screaming punk metal guitars all pumped through crunching distortion. Recognisable elements combined into a something new and different – a sort of futuristic musical take on a medieval chimera. The songs themselves are nothing but fluff, just lyrical wallpaper on which to hang this glorious noise. Only for the adventurous.
