Crystal Castles

Air War

Their name may conjure up images of Jim Morrison wandering the arctic tundra in search of The Golden Compass, but judging by ‘Air War’, Crystal Castles’ mission is far more sinister. Having just completed a tour which resulted in “fan riots, crowd surges, and metal barriers destroyed” (it says here) these electro anarchists seem set to cause further havoc in Fluoroville with this brutal burst of bleep-pop. Daytime radio programmers will despair at the cut-up vocals, but the soothing waves of synths at the close will ensure the bouncers at their forthcoming gigs will have their work cut out.
