sleighbells

No strangers to a heavy, vibrating shimmy and shake, Brooklyn’s Sleigh Bells are set to release their debut album, Treats, on May 11 via a newly inked partnership with M.I.A.’s NEET Recordings.

The duo, comprised of Alexis Krauss and Derek Miller, recorded Treats in Brooklyn in January and February of this year with Miller at the controls. Riding a massive wave of buzz thanks to powerhouse performances at CMJ back in October, Sleigh Bells are off to Austin to take SXSW by storm this week with four heavily anticipated sets, before heading out on a lengthy trek supporting Major Lazer and Yeasayer’s tours.
