Sleigh Bells met Chicago based dual talent Tink when the two played a Red Bull Sound Select show in Austin, Texas during SXSW 2014. While they were already familiar with Tink’s music, Derek and Alexis were blown away by Tink’s energy and confidence on stage – even inviting her up to sing during the closing moments of the Sleigh Bells set that night. When the band was next in the studio in New York City, they invited Tink to contribute a verse to a new track that Derek was producing. Things went well in the studio, and the collaboration deepened as Alexis and Tink worked out additional melodies and vocal parts – within a day, “That Did It” was complete, and is available now courtesy of Red Bull Sound Select. You can now listen to “That Did It” now via this link or the player below.
Stay tuned for more on the Sleigh Bells x Tink collaboration. Tink will be playing with Saba and A$AP Mob at the Palladium on November 30, as part of Red Bull Sound Select Presents: 30 Days in LA.
