Well, now we need a pair of Keds and a letterman jacket.

Sleigh Bells released its music video yesterday for “Infinity Guitars.” A few things: cool car; wish we could’ve been cheerleaders in high school; how do we get hair like Alexis? This band is our day in, day out jam. Did anyone catch the live stream of their show at the Studio at Webster Hall last night on MTV.com? They looked and sounded amazing (even filtered through the Internet). And just in case you missed our story with Alexis, be sure to read Joey No. 1.

Sleigh Bells singer Alexis Krauss chats with Joey—with photos by Elizabeth Weinberg.

It didn’t take us long to think of Sleigh Bells’ Alexis Krauss while figuring who we wanted to feature in our Joey debut. The first time we met the singer, her band with Derek Miller was hardly yet on anyone’s radar. She was nice, somewhat assuming, if maybe even a bit shy—nothing like the presence that makes itself known onstage during a Sleigh Bells show. Six months later, when we finally saw her perform at a massive South by Southwest showcase, we were blown away. In her element, Alexis commands absolute attention, and for an issue all about cool girls, she seemed perfect. We asked photographer Elizabeth Weinberg to shoot Alexis in New York, at home and in her own wardrobe. (Special thanks to Marni Giannotti, as well, for handling makeup and hair.) Click through to see more photos of Alexis from Joey No. 1 and to read our interview with the singer.
