On their killer, M.I.A.-approved debut Treats, Sleigh Bells deliver danceable noise and cheerleader chants with little more than junk-shop drum machines, heavily distorted guitars and singer Alexis Krauss’ shouted vocals. Now they’ve released a clip that captures their arty, schoolyard nightmare perfectly — check out their new video for “Infinity Guitars” here.
In the clip, Krauss plays a bat-wielding cheerleader strutting the streets of a bombed-out industrial neighborhood while guitarist Derek Miller prowls alongside her looking like the hipster spawn of Steve Vai — dig his vintage 1980s Jackson guitar!
There’s also a bat-chewing rabid dog, a pile of guitars that get set on fire and the hottest use of a sports car in a music video since Whitesnake’s “Here I Go Again” video. Yes!
