Sleigh Bells Release ‘Demons’ Video and Diplo Remix
Feeling like your pop culture diet could use more cranked-up guitars and slow-motion shots of fishnets? Great news: Sleigh Bells have released the official video for their latest single, ‘Demons’ — as well as a brand-new remix of the song, courtesy of Diplo.
Pitchfork reports that the new clip was co-directed by Gregory Kohn and band member Derek Miller, culled from footage filmed at a handful of Sleigh Bells gigs in an effort to approximate the feel of “classic Pantera videos.” To that end, it features an eyeful of singer Alexis Krauss in full headbanging mode, rocking her trademark leather jacket, short shorts and fishnets combo as enthusiastically as she rocks the mic — along with a little good old-fashioned crowdsurfing.
‘Devils’ is the second single from the band’s latest LP, ‘Reign of Terror,’ released in late February. Greeted by generally enthusiastic reviews, ‘Terror’ just missed the Top 10 of Billboard’s album chart. The band is gearing up for a healthy run of summer tour dates in support of the album, including a number of dates with Red Hot Chili Peppers and Hot Chip.
Enjoy your double dose of ‘Devils’ below, and let us know which of the versions you prefer — the regular album track, or the Diplo remix?
