6 Songs, 18 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

On her debut solo EP, the former Crystal Castles frontwoman channels all the rage and dread of her previous project into steely electronic anthems as sharp as knives. Pairing apocalyptic trap rhythms with the clearest vocal production she’s ever used, “Without Love” is a fierce and unequivocal declaration of independence, while “Forgiveness” deals in shuddering EBM synths and lyrics about emptiness and abandon. Where those songs captivate and intimidate, “Natural Selection” straight-up terrifies, lobbing volley after volley of blood-curdling shrieks and punishing digital noise.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

I'm so happy.

I've missed hearing new music from Alice Glass the last few years a lot, but the wait was worth it. This is genuine, interesting, and all around good. I love it.

She's grown so much as a musician and I'm so happy that she's gone solo, she isn't being held back anymore. It's exciting! ❤️

So good!

Alice doesn't need Crystal Castles

She tried

I expected so much more. But just sounds like all the other alt/electronic girls out there now. The lyrics are reminiscent of an angsty goth child's diary, and lack the depth and creativity that she was accredited with when she was in CC..

Alice may have been the 'face' of CC but this album, these tracks, certainly prove she wasn't the brains.
