The new video and song from the Brooklyn noise duo Sleigh Bells throb with rage and fiery defiance. Words flash on screen over Derek Miller's jagged guitars as the video opens: "As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to build a fire."

We then see Sleigh Bells singer Alexis Krauss floating face down in a swimming pool. When she surfaces, slowly coming to life, thick black mascara streams down her grimacing face. Later, she's sprinting down the street, fleeing some unseen predator, as Miller covers his face with a bandanna, straps on his guitar and shreds in a cemetery.

"It's Just Us Now" is from Sleigh Bells' upcoming album Jessica Rabbit, due out Nov. 11 on Torn Clean/Sinderlyn Records. It's the third song the group has shared in recent months — they previously dropped "Rule Number One" and "Hyper Dark."
