Holly MacCauley from Frankie chats to Alexis from Sleigh Bells about their new album “Treats”.
Tell us why we should buy your record, Treats, how would you describe it in a couple of words?
Oh, that’s a tough question. Well, I think you should buy Treats because it is the type of record that you’re going to listen to and you’re going to feel something, it’s an experience, it’s something that will, hopefully, make you want to move and sing along and have fun. It’s a social record, it’s not the kind of record that you want to listen to by yourself in your room, it will make you want to go out and have fun and dance and forget about all the other crap that you normally worry about-or at least that is our goal, that’s what we want people to feel when they listen to Treats.
I have the album, and Alexis is right! It's almost impossible not to enjoy every track. The mix of unpredicatble beats and quirky lyrics pull me out of even the foulest of moods. It's certainly a treat.
