Single Reviews

Crystal Castles – Wrath of God


26.09.12 | Self Released

The new single from the electronic duo’s upcoming album (III) was recently aired by Zane Lowe and is probably exactly what you were expecting; well crafted, strangely beautiful noise which sounds like the bastard child of industrial and clubland. They’ve clearly stuck to what they know, so it’s the standard Crystal Castles formula of three and a half minutes of screaming synths and yowling banshee vocals courtesy of Alice Tree. Fans of the band will no doubt love this new single, but to me, like the majority of their work, it just sounds repetitive and messy and I can’t find anything to really love about the song.
