Sleigh Bells (Alexis Krauss and Derek E. Miller) are releasing a new mini-album, Kid Kruschev, on November 10 via their own label Torn Clean. Previously they shared its first single, “And Saints.” Now they have shared another track from the album, “Rainmaker.” Listen below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Miller had this to say about the song in a press release: “Some of you might recognize the main synth/chord progression of ‘Rainmaker’ from the trailer we made for Reign of Terror back in 2011. I’ve always loved those chords…only took me six years to find the right spot for them. I’ve also been dying to sample the Soul Searchers ‘Ashley’s Roachclip’ break, which is up there with Funky Drummer in my humble opinion (Miss you, Clyde). I think the two speak to each other, puts me in a good place. And of course I really, really love Alexis’s vocal which sounds desperate in the best way.”

Sleigh Bells released their fourth album, Jessica Rabbit, last year via Torn Clean/Sinderlyn.
