A lot’s been written about fuzzed-out Brooklyn pop duo Sleigh Bells, even though they have exactly zero official releases to their name. That’ll change May 11, when their debut album, Treats, hits courtesy of M.I.A.’s NEET imprint and Mom + Pop.
The record was produced by SB guitarist Derek Miller, who also recently did some work on M.I.A.’s forthcoming third LP. The intense, beat-bruising Sleigh Bells live show is not to be missed, and it’ll be tough to avoid the pair on stage as they tour with Major Lazer and Yeasayer, and play SXSW, Coachella, and the Pitchfork Music Festival in the coming months.
