For many bands, the visual aesthetic is typically given little thought. Watching Sleigh Bells shows you how simple, classic, and powerful a well tailored band image can be. They’re not reinventing the wheel but they are getting their point across.
This is what rock and roll used to be about. The spectacle is all here, but it’s done without anything too crazy. No pyro, no elaborate band, no trippy visuals, just a band rocking the house, in front of a wall of amps, looking kick ass, and gaining fans with each riff.
