The duo met in 2008 when Miller was waiting tables and happened to come across Krause and mentioned he was looking for a female vocalist for a music project. With her mother's support, Krause accepted Miller's offer. Thus Sleigh Bells was formed. Treats is their first album, the song Tell Em was released as a free download in April 2010. Picking up this album , I did not know what to expect but in the end, I throughly enjoyed my Treats and consider this one of the better albums I've heard this year as well as Tell Em being one of my top songs of 2010.
