Biografie

Toronto, Kanada (2003 – aktuell)

Crystal Castles war ein Elektro-Duo aus Toronto, Kanada, benannt nach dem Zuhause der Actionfigur „She-Ra“. Mitglieder sind Ethan Kath, zuständig für Sounds, Beats und Programmierung, sowie Vocalist Alice Glass. Die Beats reichen von pumpendem Lo-Fi bis zu technoidem Elektro-Trash.

Gegründet wurde das Duo 2003, vorerst jedoch nicht mit dem Ziel professionell Musik zu machen. Durch das Internet erlangten Crystal Castles jedoch rasch eine Hörerschaft und Plattenfirmen wurden auf die Gruppe aufmerksam. 2008 erschien dann der erste Longplayer „Crystal Castles“ auf Last Gang Records.

April 2010 brachten sie ihr 2tes Album mit dem Titel “ CrystalCastles II“ heraus, wobei der Release für den 5. Juni geplant war, aber da das Album schon zwei Monate vorher im Internet geleaked ist, hat sich die Band dazu entschlossen es früher zu veröffentlichen.

Crystal Castles haben außerdem diverse Remixe für bekannte Gruppen produziert, wie zum Beispiel „Atlantis to interzone“ (Klaxons) und „Hunting for witches“ (Bloc Party).

Im Oktober 2014 wurde die Band aufgelöst.


Alice Glass:

„My art and my self-expression in any form has always been an attempt towards sincerity, honesty, and empathy for others. For a multitude of reasons both professional and personal I no longer feel that this is possible within Crystal Castles. Although this is the end of the band, I hope my fans will embrace me as a solo artist in the same way they have embraced Crystal Castles.“

    After a few listens I admit I'm loving Edith's vocals.

    then CC should be instrumental now cause Edith's ersatz Alice vocals are ass (except Ethan clearly cares to get vocals on his tracks so he could do better) and if I want to listen to HEALTH I'll listen to HEALTH zzzzzz. they're both making mediocre music right now, that's all.

    @tekbasinaadam Soundwise it was all Ethan. In interviews they said the guitar solo at the end of Birds was the only time Alice played an instrument on a CC track. Alice appears on 7 of the 16 songs on the debut album and they would talk about the lyrics being hers on that album but on (II) and (III) the interviews discuss Ethan's lyrics so something clearly changed after (I).

    I think Alice was the force that made them forward soundwise and lyricswise eventhough Ethan was obviously the better producer/executer of the songs/ideas.I don't know,i think i like Alice's stuff more but i 'm still looking for what CC will do.

    She didn't. She wrote the lyrics, not the songs. All the songs were done by Ethan. No he doesn't. CC can be instrumental for all i care. She doesn't need a better producer, Jupiter Keyes did the production. It sounds a bit like Health, and anything that sounds like Health is good. She needs better cover photos. That's all.

    pretty sure Alice said she wrote many of their songs? And yes they do. Ethan needs a better vocalist and Alice needs a better produce. Clearly doing their own thing together was better than doing their own thing solo.

    Ethan does not need Alice to nothing, he makes good music different from her that all he knew was screaming 😊❤

    They don't. Ethan never needed Alice to produce music, and Alice never needed Ethan to sing. Both of them were doing their own thing within the project. Alice never wrote any music whatsoever, Ethan never sang apart from the pitch shifting.

    Listening to their "solo" singles, it is evident that they both need each other creatively. Hopefully their respective albums don't sound as uninspired as Frail/Deicide and Stillbirth.

    @julianadns That's not Ethan's side at all. He said in a recent interview "I wished her the best because despite everything, I'll always love her and sincerely want her to do well and be happy. I encourage everyone to anticipate Alice's solo music, I'm excited for it myself." You're on your own side where everything is black and white and you must hate one to love the other.
