Crystal Castles’ singer and massive performer, Alice Glass left the group last year which promptly left the internet deciding that they’d broken up. Since then they’ve now released two singles to be taken from an album which they are currently recording with a new singer simply titled ‘Edith’.
‘Deicide’ has typically eerie vocals and some slightly detuned synths that build into what almost feels like a standard dance track in terms of rhythm but with a more dark and twisted edge with the reverb and harshness of the synths. There has been some tension between Alice Glass and Ethan Kath since Glass left with Kath suggesting that he was the sole driving force of the project insinuating that he could’ve used any singer for Crystal Castles. This song feels like he’s trying to drive that point home with it sounding typically like Crystal Castles despite the lack of Alice.
