Album Review – Summer Kicks: CRYSTAL CASTLES – Crystal Castles

Text: George Nikas

Crystal Castles till now, had been standing at the bottom of nu rave/blog-house scene. However they have reinvented themselves, becoming new indie stars. The reason for this is simple: Crystal Castles have a unique sound reminding of hardly anyone but themselves and their success is fulfilled when slamming the door in style to a once fashionable genre. And how do they manage that? By taking an artistic leap beyond indie music’s limits. And the loathing keeps on going.
