Crystal Fighters

Some bands operate in such a broad spectrum of music styles that people might initially get a very diverse picture of them. The first and lasting impression that Crystal Fighters made on us was with their super-clubby track „I Love London“. We could rather see them and us dancing and shaking down the streets (like the girl in the official music video) than coming together for an acoustic (!) session. Also their other big hit Xtatic Truth provokes the feeling of Crystal Fighters being heavily dependent on electronics. After some deeper listening we were then hit by the fragility of the band’s newer song „At Home“ and thus the song seemed predestined for an offstage performance. Yet it was still striking to see with which intensity Sebastian Pringle and Gilbert Vierich transferred their complex studio version into a lo-fi gem.
