New Sounds: Sleigh Bells keep the treats coming on ‘And Saints,’ announce mini LP release

As the holiday season rapidly (and uncomfortably) approaches, it only makes sense that noise-pop duo Sleigh Bells would dish out a new album. The Brooklyn act announced earlier this morning that their seven-track “mini LP” Kid Kruschev will drop on November 10, sharing new track “And Saints” as a gentle first taste of the record.

Guitarist Derek Miller states in the press release that he and vocalist Alexis Krauss might lean towards releasing shorter albums, at least for the time being, and discussed the pastoral process of working on Kid Kruschev.

“Alexis moved north of Brooklyn recently, somewhere with trees and cliffs, providing us with a new space to write and record without pissing off neighbors, so that’s what we’ve been doing,” Miller says in the presser. “We didn’t want to wait another year or two to release something. We like the idea of putting out shorter records at a more consistent rate, so we’re gonna give it a shot for a while, see how it feels. Thanks for listening. Take care.”

Come 2018, the pair will tour North America in support of the new record, stopping at the Paradise Rock Club on January 24. Until then, space out with “And Saints” if you need to chill, or throw it back with “Kids” if you missed your morning coffee.
