Sleigh Bells

Why: Brutally simple and simply brutal, New York’s Sleigh Bells strip things down to Alexis Krauss’s creamy vocals and Derek E. Miller’s extra-crunchy guitar riffs and massive drum-machine beats. But what they do with these rudimentary elements lifts them into a new pop paradigm—a shocking-chartreuse brand of bubblegum metal with dance beats that could topple the Chrysler Building. Sleigh Bells’ 2010 debut, Treats, was a fun, heavy revelation, stoking anticipation for the new Reign of Terror.
