ALICE In Horrorland – Former Crystal Castle Impresses With Dark Debut Album ‘PREY///IV’

22 February 2022

Artist: ALICE GLASS
Who: Canadian singer/songwriter who was electro
act Chrystal Castles‘ voice for 8 years. She left in
2014 to start her solo trip.

Debut album: PREY///IV
Released: 18 February 2022 – Order info here

NME: “The unbreakable artist has reemerged from the wreckage of her former band,
Crystal Castles, with a lazer-focused, brutally honest solo debut… As well as functioning
as a pun, the title of Alice Glass’ debut solo album ‘PREY//IV’ is a strong statement.

Continuing with the Roman numeral naming-scheme used on the three albums she released with former electroclash band Crystal Castles, it’s a clear middle finger in the direction of her ex-collaborator Ethan Kath, whom she accused of abuse and manipulation (which he denies)… An astoundingly honest, and at times brutal, listen, ‘PREY//IV’ still ends on a note of hope.” Score: 4/5.

Alice Glass (in an interview with NME): “If I could take a pill and erase all my memories, I would. I didn’t think I would be here – I thought I’d be dead for sure. I was very suicidal as a teenager and young person… There’s so much suffering in the world, and I bring [up my difficult experiences] now because, in a weird way, every time I open up about this, somebody writes me or sends a really nice message where they can relate to what I’m saying. It’s been really helpful for me psychologically to put things out. That’s what this record is like for me: I’m going to put my pain out into the world and then I don’t own it anymore.”

TURN UP THE VOLUME: Black electro-pop. Industrial hits and drones.
Excorcistic escapes. Alice in horrorland. Transfixing and nerve-racking.

ALICE GLASS – Former CHRYSTAL CASTLES Voice Announces Debut Solo LP And Shares First Single

New striking strokes

19 November 2021

Artist: ALICE GLASS
Who: Canadian singer/songwriter who was electro act
Chrystal Castles‘ voice for 8 years. She left in 2014 and
started writing solo material.

Debut album: PREY///IV
After an EP and some stand-alone tracks Glass finally

2022 via Eating Glass Records.

Lead single: BABY TEETH

Alice: “I like to make songs that you can dance to when you’re sad.
Baby Teeth is probably the darkest and most hopeless track on my
record, but it sounds misleadingly hopeful. It’s about embracing despair.

There will always be people that prey on others for their own gain, sometimes
ruining lives for the most fleeting selfish pleasures. This is human nature, and
it hurts too much to think about. And sometimes, the only power it feels like we
have left is to say, “Hey, you can’t hurt me, because I’m hurting myself first. I’ve
beat you to it.”

Scariness hidden in a poppy electro jingle.
