Finally some new music from Sleigh Bells' delayed sophomore LP, Reign of Terror. We were beginning to the album didn't really exist. It's real and "Comeback Kid" is classically Sleigh Bells, just brought down to an eight.
You'd imagine that with its Apocalypse Now single art that it would be one of those face-melting numbers the duo pulls off so well. Instead, "Comeback Kid" keeps company with the mellower side of Treats. With Derek Miller's crunchy, grittiness somewhat scaled back, Alexis Krauss' pretty melody is coruscating through like a diamond in the rough. Listen below, and remember, Reign of Terror is out February 21.
