Alice Glass responds to ex-Crystal Castles bandmate’s scathing statement
Alice Glass left Crystal Castles six months ago, but Ethan Kath has continued to make music under the Crystal Castles name. A few days ago, he uploaded a song titled “Frail” with the following statement in the track’s SoundCloud description:
i wish my former vocalist the best of luck in her future endeavors. i think it can be empowering for her to be in charge of her own project. it should be rewarding for her considering she didn’t appear on Crystal Castles’ best known songs. (she’s not on Untrust Us. “Not In Love,” “Vanished,” “Crimewave,” “Vietnam,” “Magic Spells,” “Knights,” “Air War,” “Leni,” “Lovers Who Uncover,” “Violent Youth,” “Reckless,” “Year of Silence,” “Intimate,” “1991,” “Good Time,” “Violent Dreams” etc.). people often gave her credit for my lyrics and that was fine, i didn’t care.
He quickly retracted the statement, replacing it with the following description:
i wish my former vocalist the best of luck in her future endeavors. i think it can be empowering for her to be in charge of her own project. <3
this is Edith on vocals
Alice responded to Ethan’s shots in a series of Tweets:
In an interview with i-D, Alice described her new album as sounding “like a kitten eating their hoarding owners after they die.” Needless to say, we can’t wait to hear what that sounds like.
