Watch Sleigh Bells on Jimmy KimmelBy Julio Enriquez | October 18th, 2013 | No Comments »
Sleigh Bells ditched its duo aesthetic in favor of a massive backing band with brass and singers on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Thursday.
Don’t worry, leather and animal prints still ruled the stage as Sleigh Bells performed two crushing takes off of the new album, “Bitter Rivals,” released Oct. 8.
A tough performance of the title track from the new album brought a killer brass section and what really sounded like live barking dogs. “Tiger Kit” put lead singer Alexis Krauss as a frisky lead woman on the prowl, securely holding down the front stage duties with thundering guitarist Derek Edward Miller. Sleigh Bells performs at Denver’s Bluebird Theater on Oct. 23. See full Sleigh Bells tour dates here.
