The wonderful thing about Sleigh Bells, as the commercial pointed out, is the harmony of seemingly contrasting elements. Even the name of the genre is something of an oxymoron: noise pop. Sleigh Bells embrace this clash of styles and sounds, and it couldn’t possibly be captured more perfectly than in the first few seconds of this video, in which lead singer Alexis Krauss jumps on the bed with a smile on her face and a rifle in her hands. It’s good to have Sleigh Bells back.
