Single Review – Crystal Castles – Decide

We found out earlier this year that Toronto’s Crystal Castles have in fact lived on without Alice Glass and that now Ethan Kath now has a new vocalist by the name of Edith. They debuted their first new track together with the single ‘Frail’ and the track will feature on their upcoming LP. They’ve followed this up with a second single ‘Decide’. The subtle whirring electronica of the opening of the song is soon followed up with a driving bass beat and with rumbling dance samples behind it, from here Edith’s slight vocal delivery weaves it’s way between the industrial sounds. These sounds move backwards and forwards in their focus to highlight the beat and the song is another example of them challenging the stereotypes of dance music.
