Crystal Castles’ new singles!

CrystalCastles02

As we mentioned a couple of days ago, Crystal Castles are gearing up to release two new single in the coming weeks and now you can listen to radio rips of both new tracks.

The first, released in a very limited edition quantity of 500 copies, for Record Store Day tomorrow, is ‘Doe Deer’ is chaotic Crystal Castles at their finest, with a maddeningly repetitive riff and Alice screaming like a nutter over distorted drums and synths it is the Crystal Castles we know and love turned up to 11.

The forthcoming single proper is a bit of a (pleasant) surprise though. It’s not like CC haven’t produced melodic tunes before, but ‘Celestica, is pretty slick, ElectroPop. It’s still intricate in it use of electronic sounds but, in general, it’s a really club friendly Pop track with a dreamlike quality. Proper vocals and everything!

Have a listen to this rip from Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show.

Crystal Castles new album news + new reMixes

CrystalCastles

This week Crystal Castles triumphantly announced their return with a new album and two new singles.

In an awesome move the new album, as with their début, will be self titled! Which is just a stroke of genius. The first proper single released will be a track called ‘Celestica’.

Before that, however, the duo are releasing a limited edition (500 copies) 12” of ‘Doe Deer’ to celebrate Record Store Day on 17th April.

To get you warmed up for all this good stuff here’s a couple of new reMixes. Midnight Conspiracy’s take on ‘Crimewave’ is a pretty amazing slice of 8-bit flavoured SynthPop and ‘Untrust Us’ as reMixed by Alex Zelenka, which is a deep bleepy vision of the original.
