Stream: Sleigh Bells – “Comeback Kid”

Sleigh Bells – Comeback Kid

Sleigh Bells will release their new album, Reign of Terror, on February 21st, but the duo have already made two tracks from the album – “Born to Lose” and now “Comeback Kid” – available for streaming. “Comeback Kid” is the album’s first single, and features the quick swipes of distortion, quasi-cheerleader chants, and exhilaration of staple Sleigh Bells efforts. This one in particular has a hazy chorus that serves as a starkly successful transition from its harder-rocking verses.
