You can imagine our shock when we found out that Crystal Castles is splitting. Alice Glass, the vocalist of the experimental electronic music duo, announced that she her leave is due to ‘personal and professional reasons’. She posted this announcement on her Facebook page. She announced that she’d be going solo in future for reasons “both professional and personal”. She wrote:
“I am leaving Crystal Castles. My art and my self-expression in any form has always been an attempt towards sincerity, honesty, and empathy for others. For a multitude of reasons both professional and personal I no longer feel that this is possible within CC. Although this is the end of the band, I hope my fans will embrace me as a solo artist in the same way they have embraced Crystal Castles.”
We’re sad that we never saw the duo live but look forward to experiencing Alice as a solo artist.
