Crystal Castles

Crystal Castles are an electronic music duo out of Canada.  The duo features Ethan Kath who does the instruments for the group, and Alice Glass who is the vocalist/lyricist.  They have a very unique sound, I would classify it as "video game-esque."  Some of their songs are very chill and nice to listen to, while some have a thrash punk sound and has Alice screaming in a very high pitched manner.  In their studio recordings, most of Alice's vocal work is heavily edited to give their music a distinct edge.  They have a lot of great songs, but empathy, magic spells, and untrust us are my favorite.

Untrust Us
Empathy

Magic Spells


I'll post more soon!  It's the end of the semester so I haven't had much free time to work on this blog, but after this week I will be free!

  1. I like the first song the most. The muffled voice and just the weirdness of the "lyrics" are what get me. I like blogs like this that open my eyes to new music.
