I first heard Sleigh Bells’ album back in June and I was completely obsessed straight away. It was the first time in a while that I’d heard something new and original that made me want to run away and become a rock star, nevermind my age, talent or ability. So, imagine my delight when my flatmate Anna told me about their free gig happening at Rough Trade off Brick Lane this evening! It was a-mazing. Alexis Krauss (lead vocalist) is my new girl-crush. Feisty, beautiful, raw, talented and covered in GREAT tattoos. Girl swoon.
If you haven’t heard them yet, just listen to this.
