The cover of Sleigh Bells' most recent album, 2021's Texis, features a black-and-white image of singer Alexis Krauss at age 11. She looks directly into the camera as if posing for a school photo and sports a slightly mischievous smile, a bob haircut and a twinkle in her eye, as if she knows far more than she should. It's a curious visage, at once innocent and oddly subversive – a fitting encapsulation of what Sleigh Bells has perpetrated on listeners for more than a decade now.
