Hooray, Here Is A New Sleigh Bells Song Called “Born To Lose”


The distorto-pop duo Sleigh Bells’ second album Reign Of Terror will be out next year, and the first single has dropped: It’s called “Born To Lose,” it veers between being absolutely pummeling and losing itself in dream-pop chime, and it has a blown-out guitar solo that sounds like a chorus of video-game consoles on the march for the purposes of reclaiming music for the forces of—well, if not good, at least liveliness. A stream of the track, which premiered today in the UK (via Spin), is below.

Now you understand the “hooray,” right?
