Crystal Castles are an experimental synthpop duo from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Musically, Canada is well-known for Celine Dion, Bryan Adams, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, a long line of innovative electronic acts such as Skinny Puppy, Delerium, and Grimes. “Empathy” is a catchy, dreamlike song off of CC’s second full-length, II.
Frontlady Alice Glass sings of human beings being more like insects than we might have previously thought, her words and voice bringing dystopian visions to your mind’s eye; all to the backdrop of a strongly mesmeric instrumental.
