Crystal Castles: Vanished

So, just what exactly possessed me into writing about the hipster-ridden, dance-punk, electronic duo, Crystal Castles? All blames can be directed to this little song right here:

|mp3| Crystal Castles - Vanished

A brilliant tune, although in truth, it’s actually a remix version of Australian band, Van She’s ‘Sex City’. As much as this duo actually scares a small part me, ‘Vanished’ takes a more accessible, people-friendly approach; simple, swirly, looped synths underlie obscure, distorted lyrics with an 80’s, industrial feel that I can never say no to. More for me please.
