Have You Heard? Sleigh Bells - I Can Only Stare

A punishing take on pop.

The cacophony that Sleigh Bells conjure up has never slipped down as sweet as on ‘I Can Only Stare’. A punishing take on pop, it sounds torn straight from the heart of a thunder storm, but in Alexis Krauss’ soaring voice, the cut a hole in the clouds.

Hers is a voice box that could rival the greats of pop - pit her against the likes of Florence and she’d not only run vocal rings around them, but she’d batter them into submission. Clattering but controlled, ‘I Can Only Stare’ is quintessential Sleigh Bells; a sugar-rush comedown like no other.

Sleigh Bells’ new album ‘Jessica Rabbit’ is out on November 11th via Torn Clean / Lucky Number.
