Sleigh Bells Still Creepy in ‘End of the Line’ Video
Def Leppard-style power-balled haunts the 'burbs
SPIN favorites — and Anthony Bourdain pals — Sleigh Bells have released a video for their Prom-worthy new single “End of the Line.” Co-directed by producer-guitarist Derek Miller and Gregory Kohn, the clip features more of the band’s now-trademark creepy Americana imagery. Miller and singer Alexis Krauss ride bikes through eerily empty suburban streets, intercut with shots of the latter in a white nightgown looking forlorn against a black backdrop, on a bed, and wandering in the desert at twilight. It’s all set to the song’s machine-gunned Def Leppard power-balled vibe.
Sleigh Bells will appear on Bourdain’s No Reservations – The Final Tour on September 3. The show will air at 9.00 p.m. EST/PST on Travel Channel. Starting August 28, the band will hit the road alongside DJ-wizard AraabMuzik.
