Five Canadian Acts Burning Their Way To International Acclaim
Label: Last Gang
Management: James Sandom /SuperVision
They caused a stir in the U.K. before anyone in Canada paid too much attention, but Crystal Castles are gaining momentum like a runaway train. The band is signed with Last Gang Records supremo Chris Taylor, who found success with the similarly noisy Death From Above ’79. Much of the buzz around the band has focused on dynamic frontman Alice Glass. The band’s debut, which focuses on merging minimalist electronic tendencies with blips and beats, is a polarizing affair. But judging by their reception during opening gigs for the likes of The Cure, Cystal Castles have some mighty powerful supporters. They’ll likely gain more with a booking this June at the Bonnaroo Festival.
