Sleigh Bells on Amplified

Our friends over at ABC News Amplified are featuring the second of five bands that played our CMJ showcase back in October.  Sleigh Bells is the kick ass Brooklyn-based duo Derek Miller and Alexis Krauss, who met when Miller was waiting tables.  The two struck up a convo while Krauss was dining with her mom, mom nominated daughter to join Miller’s next music venture, and the rest is history.

You’ll want to watch here because Sleigh Bells are so, so good.  But you’ll also want to watch for the amazing juxtaposition of Derek Miller’s former “hardcore band” Poison the Well and Alexis Krauss’ former “girl band” Ruby Blue.  Also, general video fun with our favorite TV anchor Dan Harris and Krauss’ signature pink spandex.  (I’ve always had a soft spot for pink spandex.)
