    Judging by the latest output from Sleigh Bells, their next album will likely be an assorted affair. In December, they put out quite possibly their prettiest tune to date in “Champions of Unrestricted Beauty”, followed by last month’s thrasher “Rule Number One”. Today, the Derek Miller and Alexis Krauss show yet a different side to their noise-pop machine with “Hyper Dark”.

    While not as sinister as its title might imply — it’s certainly not black metal — the latest offering does find the two-piece lurking about in the shadows. Krauss’ feathery vocals meander as beats throb and glow in the background like an impending storm. It’s more low-key and electronic-leaning than anything we’ve come to expect from the Brooklyn duo — it’d make for a sweet Grimes thing, though — but perhaps that’s a good thing?

    Stream it up above. Below, find the band’s upcoming US tour dates.
