Crystal Castles, the lo-fi electronic duo from consisting of Ethan Kath and Alice Glass, are no longer, ending 10+ years of chaos.
Via Alice Glass’ solo Facebook page, “I am leaving Crystal Castles… My art and my self-expression in any form has always been an attempt towards sincerity, honesty and empathy for others. For a multitude of reasons both professional and personal, I no longer feel that this is possible within CC. Although this is the end of the band, I hope my fans will embrace me as a solo artist in the same way they have embraced Crystal Castles.”
As sad as it is to see a the break-up of such a great and longstanding local act – there is a silver lining here: it means that we get to go through the best Crystal Castles songs!!
