This Is Fake DIY

Single// Crystal Castles – Sad Eyes


From the first listen it became clear that Crystal Castles’ third studio album – ‘(III)’ – is, by far, their most textured album to date. Presenting imminent signs of maturation, not in a sense of settling down and writing top ten hits, but as in experimenting with new techniques and flirting with darker themes. Supplying a sinister ambience, as presented through releases such as ‘Plague’ and ‘Wrath Of God’, complimenting their erratic live performances impeccably.

And now with the introduction of a short music video to accompany ‘Sad Eyes’, frontwoman Alice Glass is seen in a whole new light: and although the track still upholds a rushing tempo and euphoric synth element, it’s perhaps the most tame single that the Toronto duo have ever produced.
