Crystal Castles aren’t dead after all, return with ‘Frail’
Crystal Castles fans can rejoice in knowing that despite Alice Glass leaving the band last fall, the project remains alive and well in the hands of Ethan Kath. At first listen the vocalist on “Frail” sounds eerily similar to Glass, but despite the near-match, the singer here is not the old CC vocalist but rather a singer named Edith. Still, everything we loved about the indie electronic outfit is present on “Frail” including startling vocal scowls and heavily-filtered grit that take us back to the blog house era of electronic music.
Kath wrote this on Facebook in regards to the track; “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.”
