Crystal Castles just released the video for ‘Baptism’. It’s honestly one of the worst videos I’ve seen recently; Alice Glass sways and bops like her usual maniacal self, Christopher Chartrand (I think, could be Ethan?) drums whilst wearing an extremely creepy mask, footage of backstage areas and burning houses play in the background. The production values seem shoddy and there’s really nothing special to report. It does all seem to fit in with the band’s ‘we don’t really give a fuck attitude’ though.
So why post?? Well, Crystal Castles drew me into a trance-like state of fandom whilst seeing them perform at Leeds Festival. This song struck the killer blow, and therefore anything relating to it must be mentioned. You don’t really need to look at the video I suppose, just listen and let the raving begin.

Two new Arcade Fire songs dropped today, taken from upcoming album The Suburbs. The band have been performing the songs at live shows, and now we get to hear the recorded versions. Zane Lowe debuted ‘We Used To Wait’, saying it is the first official UK single from the new album. All these new tracks are making me extremely excited to see the band in their headlining slot at Leeds Festival! Listen to ‘We Used To Wait’ and ‘Ready To Start’ below.
