Lucky Number Music
Like Jessica Rabbit herself, this album is satisfying, alluring and elusive. Mixing sweet, sugary riffs with harsh guitars and abrasive drum beats, Sleigh Bells push the boundaries of pop/rock as they have always done, but this album takes a new direction towards a much more visceral style for the Brooklyn-based duo.
Discordant juxtapositions of tempos and beats make opening track, It’s Just Us Now, feel like four songs in one. Hard-rock guitars combined with dance-inducing synths and erratic beats, powerhouse vocals and spots of punk; this is an album that needs to be played on full volume.
A nostalgic journey back to the music of teenage angst with a mix of adult sophistication, Sleigh Bells have re-vamped their brand and created a sound which has few limits.
