New York City scene-stealers Sleigh Bells is touring this spring. Because the world has finally recognized bubblegum pop should be as abrasive as possible and should no doubt make the family dog cower under the coffee table as if the storied vacuum monster is coming to suck up his poor doggy soul. The duo, producer/guitarist/ex-Poison The Well member Derek Miller and pop singer Alexis Krauss, will spend two months on the road, first with Brazilian party troupe CSS, then with uberchill blogsphere darling Neon Indian.



The band will release a new music video for single “Rill, Rill,” directed by John Watts (TV On The Radio, the Rapture), out later this week. Until then, we’ll have to be satisfied watch Krauss add a touch of sass and violence to the iconic varsity jacket in the video for “Infinity Guitars,” below.
