Electronic duo Crystal Castles, known worldwide for their chaotic and massive shows, will visit Aarhus in October when they have been booked by Voxhall. This follows only days after the band, originally hailing from Canada unveiled new tracks via SoundCloud and videos via Youtube and Vimeo.
Why should you go, you ask? First, Crystal Castles’ debut self-titled 2008 debut album is No. 39 on NME’s “Top 100 Greatest Albums Of The Decade”. Second, they created the soundtrack to the entire year of 2010, when they unveiled ‘Not In Love’ – their hit featuring vocals from none other than Robert Smith of The Cure. Finally, their melancholic mixture of electronic and punk music with fuck-it-all mentality is simply a must-see, when in town.
Over the last couple of years, changes in the constellation have occurred, though, so the band now comprises founding member Ethan Kath and replacement singer Edith Frances, who first featured on Ethan Kath’s 2015 release of ‘Frail’.
In short, expect one the greatest spectacles in the art of electronic music and live shows. Bring your best buddies and make this an unforgettable night. I guarantee, that you will want to continue the party after the show – and with Crystal Castles as the soundtrack of the night.
