It is no secret that Crystal Castles are one of my favourite bands. I like them that merch I even bought a tee. Mug.

Capturing the imagination of misunderstood teens with their demeanour and sullenness, they could be accused of cleverly marketing themselves as the definitive anti-hero band.  However, despite their somewhat calculated appearance with impeccable production and 80s inspired catchy gaming melodies, CC are also respected by critics & loved by part-time bloggers.

Originally on their latest album, Not In Love has been re-released as a single featuring guest vocals from Robert Smith. The result is spell binding. Whereas Alice sounded slightly whiny on the original, Smith cures this problem with his rich and distinctive effort.

You can catch Crystal Castles at the beggining of next year when they headline the NME awards tour also featuring Everything Everything, Magnetic Man & The Vaccines. Buy tickets here.
