Cyberpunk future music,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: (III) (Audio CD)
Crystal Castles deliver the usual mix of pulsing riffs, bloops and bleeps as in their last two albums with Alice Glass screeching barely audible anxty lyrics through distortion and electronic manipulation. The real music of Future Noir. A slice of a Philipdickian/cyberpunk possible future where technology and humans are indistinguishable. Still not quite premier league, but fascinating non the less. They are playing in B'rum soon, but I am working. Shame............

......still, I bought a ticket and managed to get there for their set. One of the best live bands I have seen! Brilliant light show that cast Glass et al in strobed darkness much of the time, punctuated by Glass leaping into the audience to body surf when ever she could. There was a big white arrow at the edge of the stage to direct her to the waiting fans. My ears are still ringing! My concern is whether they can sustain themselves as they creep towards a broader acceptance. The next album will need to be something quite exceptional and I look forward to it and seeing them again if I get the chance!!!!!
