Crystal Castles-Wrath of God

Following on from their bizarre video for Plague, the duo let loose another single from their upcoming (III) album, and it’s another piece of gripping electronic music that will get listeners really going for that LP.

The production’s overall vibe is one of muted intensity. The synth work throughout is urgent and driving, yet the percussion remains subdued for the verses, before livening up for a hook with plenty of bounce but once again brings that ‘held down’ quality back via vocals from Alice Glass that are very much pushed into the background. It’s an interesting combination of styles that should give this a huge appeal; despite the unique production structure, the actual song structure is classic electro, with slow verses that build to a pulsating hook. Good work from the duo, and one that’s going to warrant many replays. Could do without the screechy ending though.
