Single-worthy: Sleigh Bell's "Comeback Kid"

Sleigh Bell's blend hard rock with R&B, and are a band with style.  Their songs are loud, brash and addicting.  Their musical focus is on the late-80's pop-metal phenomenon, and the duo's personal wardrobe style is reflective of that, as they wear sunglass-and-jacket ensembles that evoke a cool tone.  Comeback Kid is their first released single off of their new album Reign of Terror. 

 Comeback Kid brings images of retro chic with Wayfarer sunglasses, Letterman Jackets, skateboarding and suburban streets.  The music is relatable and what's great about Sleigh Bells is that they do not wallow in the nostalgia but they rather create a new sense with these familiar ideas.

There's a manipulation of time in Comeback Kid and a strong overlaying emotional theme running through the lyrics.  This strong first release off Reign of Terror makes us look forward to the full release of the album.
