Sleigh Bells: Tell ‘Em

27 Aug

It’s taken me sooooo long to get into Sleigh Bells. I didn’t want to feature them just because everyone else was so I waited until I liked this song enough myself before putting it up here. I suppose that’s because the easiest way you could describe “Tell ‘Em” is NOISE POLLUTION. And plenty of it. Actually the track sounds that tiny bit patriotic thanks to that guitar but if you think about the noise that MIA can make and turn it up to eleven then you’ve got Sleigh Bells. It’s fitting that they’re label mates, although the curious singing on this isn’t like Miss Maya at all. A divider of opinion, no doubt:

    lol@ noise pollution. Very interesting though… (and I mean that in a positive sense)…catchy hooks….

    I can see why you mentioned MIA in relation to them, as they have a very similar chaotic sound. It’s heavy and dirty, yet strangely funky. I think the patriotic guitar ties it up nicely. I like it.
