New Song from Crystal Castles


To listen to Crystal Castles, according to the BBC,
‘is to be cast adrift in a vortex of deafening pain without a safety net. You get the feeling you could do anything in the world, but that ‘anything’ would ultimately mean nothing. Crystal Castles marks a nuanced emotional territory that dance music never covered before.’
 Excellent.

On the 25th July CC new song ‘Plagues’ from their upcoming third album was uploaded to Soundcloud as a free download. Keeping true to their original sound is something I applaud; so many other bands feel that with the second and third albums they need to change to keep appealing to their fans (and this often leads to icky concept albums). ‘Plagues’ at times sounds almost clubby with soft, echoing vocals and synths that give you goosebumps.

The CC sound is ever-developing and I still love it.
