Sleigh Bells: I Can Only Stare
The tenacious twosome is back at it again having just released a new album Jessica Rabbit on Friday. It has been a while since we got some fresh cuts from the ra-ra-rockers themselves and they surely do not disappoint with this their latest off the album. The synth heavy tune mixes the beastly pipes of Alexis Krauss with deep booming drums that carries the lonesomeness of the lyrics perfectly. I Can Only Stare is the perfect iteration of the feeling of helplessness when you want that other person to look inside of you and see that you are sinking but they can’t and you can’t do anything but stare and keep sinking. While this isn’t as straight forward poppy as some of their past mega jams it is catchy as hell and will be stuck in your head for days to come.
