Success sorta came by accident to Canadian electronic music devotees Crystal Castles. Producer Ethan Kath and vocalist Alice Glass recieved recognition with ease as their practice recording on MySpace grasped the attention of record companies who opted to give the duo a shot. It proved to be a wise move for the exec’s.
Since their discovery in 2005, Crystal Castles has been headlining tours in Europe, USA, Australia, and Japan. They’ve also been known to share the set with groups such as These New Puritans, The Teenagers, and Nine Inch Nails, to name a few.
Their live performance reputation matches the sound which chaotically expands from their innovative atari-inspired instrumentals. Crystal Castles music can easily be recognized by singer Alice Glass’s distorted vocals paired with heavy usage of samples. The duo has remixed classics by such acts as Bloc Party.
The cosmic collision of early entertainment systems music (Atari, Gameboy, Nintendo) paired with Glass’s distorted vocals mixes together a rash kaleidoscope of musical theory. It tastes reaaaaal good too.
If you are yearning for music that compliments your day and sets a vibe to it unmatched to any other, free of any preconcieved feelings you should have; look no further. Absorb the music of Crystal Castles.
