Listen To New Single From CRYSTAL CASTLES – CHAR Without Alice Glass
CRYSTAL CASTLES (Ethan Kath) is back with a new single ´char´ without Alice Glass and now represented on vocals by Edith Frances.
The sound is nearing a more ambient electronic going back slightly in sound to their first release, which is a good thing in our book.
This is promising, and Edith´s vocals is a new fresh addition to the music even though we have nothing against Alice Glass…
On 16 April 2015, Ethan Kath released a new Crystal Castles track, “Frail”, featuring a new vocalist named Edith. On 2 July 2015, another new song, “Deicide”, was released. Crystal Castles first live performance with the new vocalist was on November 27 at Soundswild Festival in Johannesburg, South Africa. Just before the show the band posted on Facebook with and image of Kath & new vocalist commenting ‘Edith Frances 1st show 1st time on stage, let’s show her luv xoxo’. On 23–24 February 2016 they played two sold out shows in London, the Daily Mirror tabloid made a review stating that “Alice Glass was in many ways, the face of Crystal Castles with Ethan seeming like the creative spark but it doesn’t look like their live shows, at least, will suffer without Alice”. The band has since debuted four new songs. As of June 2016, Crystal Castles are currently working on their fourth album.
