7digital What we said: Three consecutive eponymous albums? It’s either some kind of nihilistic statement or Crystal Castles simply have far more pressing matters on their mind than naming records. Sonically, the Canadian duo are fully committed to innovation, reportedly discarding instruments between albums to ensure there’s “a new palette of sounds to work with” and recording songs in one take because it’s “the rawest expression of an idea”. And it’s an approach that’s clearly paying off, because their latest album boasts some of their finest moments yet, including the malevolent, 8-bit flecked synthwave of ‘Kerosene’ and an arrestingly beautiful, pitch-black lullaby called ‘Child I Will Hurt You’.
