Crystal Castles is an
electronic music duo from
Ontario. The band consists of multi-instrumentalist
Ethan Kath and vocalist
Alice Glass. They are known not only for their own efforts as a band, but
also for their chaotic live shows and Kath's remixes for a number of groups.
Crystal Castles, named after
She-Ra's fortress in the sky, formed in December 2003 as a project started
by Ethan Kath. In April 2005, Alice Glass recorded vocals for five original
instrumentals by Kath. The band's first single was recorded "accidentally": a
microphone test by Glass was released through
MySpace as "Alice Practice" in September 2005. Glass was not aware that it
had been used until record companies heard the song and contacted the duo to
offer them record deals.
