SINGLE REVIEW: Sleigh Bells – Comeback Kid

New Yorker duo Sleigh Bells return with a mixed offering from latest single Comeback Kid.

The title track of this release is by far the best track on offer here, with a very infectious and easy on the ear effort.

Sadly second song Born To Lose seems to suffer from identity crisis; as it attempts to combine crunching guitars with plodding electro beats. It begins well enough with a punchy intro, but has descended into confusion by the halfway point.

As Alexis Krauss sings on Comeback kid, ‘Try a little harder you’re the comeback kid.’ Hopefully a more focussed release next time, will stop Sleigh Bells becoming the forgotten kid.
