Listen: Sleigh Bells shift the formula with ‘Hyper Dark’

Shuffling new track is the second to come out in the past couple of months.

Sleigh Bells have unveiled a new, bittersweet track in the form of ‘Hyper Dark’.

Their second new song in the space of two months, it links up with firebreathing single ‘Rule Number One’.

‘Hyper Dark’ is a gloomy but glistening synth-led track, with Alexis Krauss lamenting “you like trouble - I think we have a problem,” giving the duo’s all-guns-blazing vibe a new shade.
