    “neuromantic trash genius, heavy metal casio duracell-powered ballads and beats that drop like napalm tetris pieces”

    “We play rough” whisper Crystal Castles with intent, a boy-girl duo from Toronto, Canada who have the electronic underground in the palm of their hands with their debut release for Merok Records, the ‘Alice Practice’ EP.

    Named after none other than She-Ra’s home, there are a few more facts that you should know about Ethin and Alice; They hate videogames. Listen to their 8-bit sounds and here is the evidence of people gleefully winning their war with machines. Dollar-store keyboards are bought, the soundchips ripped out, and replaced with ones from 80s Atari computers. Simple, dangerous to your health, and it works.

    Born in 2004 from the street they both inhabit in Toronto, Crystal Castles are the product of Ethin’s music and Alice’s lyrics

    [size=18:747236a0b1]CLONE QUARTET[/size:747236a0b1]



    Founded by Andy Henry, Clone Quartet’s previous genre-hopping incarnations incorporated shoe gazing, lo-fi, digital metal (don’t ask), and a cross-channel electronica collaboration with his brother Steven. By January 2006, CQ had become an actual quartet (bonus!). Steven Quinn (drums), Gavin Reid (guitar), Steven Henry (bass + bass synth) and Andy Henry (vocals, sampler + guitar) are obsessed with producing both electronic and rock music.

    Equally at home on the live circuit as in the studio, Clone Quartet embrace their rock line-up as an electronic machine that audiences can relate and respond to. Colliding electro rhythms with synthetic stabs and spiky guitar riffs, Clone Quartet aspire to create kick-ass pop songs that tear up the indie clubs as well as the dance clubs.
    They will release their debut EP on Tigertrap in the spring.
