Angst in their pants

○○○○●
FOLLOWING in the wake of Crystal Castles‘ hugely successful 2008, You Love Her Coz She’s Dead and their commodore-abusing Inner City Angst EP has got a release.
The electro group, who assure fans that their moniker doesn’t promote necrophilia, are a mixture of forthright Daft Punk-style beats and Crystal Castles’ bafflingly-popular primitive computer bleeps.
However this approach pays off for the duo – although messy opening track Superheroes sounds like Bloc Party playing in a warehouse full of ringing mobile phones.
As the EP progresses the sound develops an almost glam vibe, peaking with the frenetic Blood Lust.
Quite simply, if you like Crystal Castles, you’ll think these are a cut above.
