Wednesday what’s new – Crystal Castles ft. Robert Smith

Crystal Castles have always given the impression of being far more cool than good. Far too much emphasis on haircuts and not enough on actual records led to a couple of albums of undoubted potential but ruined by several bleepy wig-outs which sounded like the fridge playing up.

However, this seems to have unblocked the creative pipes, as their new single is a corker. ‘Not In Love’ features Robert Smith and thus sounds like a Cure song. This is, undoubtedly, a good thing. Indeed, as Smith wonders which way to take his day job, can we humbly suggest that the world would prefer them to go electro again rather than continue to mine the heavy industrial goth of the last few albums? Just a thought.

  1. Crystal Castles are totally hit and miss – but Crimewave is a top tune. I shall check this out with interest!
