It’s that time again for lo-fi electro-noise group Crystal Castles. After releasing critically acclaimed albums in 2008 and 2010—both named Crystal Castles—the band is back to releasing new tracks. While no official announcements have been made, an interview the band had with NME in winter 2012 mentioned plans to record and release a new album for this summer.
Today they debuted their new song, “Plague.” As such it is oppressive and a little frightening, but infectious nonetheless. For Alice Glass and Ethan Kath, the duo that compose Crystal Castles, this song continues their streak of bleak, existentialist-crisis-conjuring songs. Listen and download below.
