on crystal castles

“Alice and Ethan are quite an enigma
together. The band doesn’t do any interviews, they arrive and leave straight
away (most of the time), and don’t associate with many others. On stage it kind
of shows – the distorted vocals of certain songs with the other microphone; the
point is you aren’t meant to ~really~ understand what she’s saying I suppose…
(although I do since I’m a freak that knows all the lyrics). Then of course
there’s the normal microphone where you hear her wailing banshee screams in
songs such as Baptism, Alice Practice and the Reckless/Through The Hosiery
She even spoke/speaks into the distorted microphone saying “I love you”, “I want
you”, etc.. it’s kind of mesmerising for some.. but weird and strange for
others. At Falls she was saying “Happy New Year” + “Hello Falls Festival”, and
Field Day she was saying “I love you Sydney” freakishly whilst staring out into
the crowd. In earlier years she used to speak to the crowd normally, but going
deeper into the hype of the band and her persona she’s more ‘mysterious’
nowadays (heck, Alice isn’t even her real name!).
To me it’s all quite hypnotic.. and it’s really just meant to send people on an
electrifying chaotic trip each time. You either love it or you don’t!
