Single Review Alice Glass – Stillbirth

The uncompromising and unpredictable Alice Glass has emerged with her first solo work since leaving Crystal Castles and only a week after the band she left had released new material from their upcoming album. ‘Stillbirth’ is a song about reclaiming yourself from a tormentor or bully and is delivered with all the musical and vocal ferocity you might imagine she’d come up with. The heavily distorted roar of heavy electronica and EDM-like blasts are interrupted by Alice’s soft and naïve sounding vocals that build up to a scream as the heavy industrial sounds reverberate around her. A fade into a moment of gentle, zoned out contemplation only sets up the song for a final blast of the chorus. You can certainly take on board the lyrical message when delivered in such a brazen fashion and is proof, despite the debates that she very much is a singular talent.
