Things just got a bit crazier that I had to break my blogging hiatus (ha!) for this new Crystal Castles track. Yesterday was a surprise SBTRKT track “Gloss” and now we have “Plague” from the Canadian goth electronica duo. Ethan and Alice has been quiet some time now since I last heard them work with Robert Smith for the “I’m Not In Love” redux. Their absence could be taken as a preparation for a new album after, well, Crystal Castles since they name their albums same all the time. In the new track, like its title, “Plague” diffuses into wild energy through its rousing beats and synths as Alice, sounding like the bearer of the havoc, screams her way through the chorus. “I am the plague,” she assures repeatedly as the track closes into an abrupt end. The track is up for download via the group’s Soundcloud page. I reckon that a new album will be soon on the way.
