Crystal are the second Glasgow band I’m picking this week. I really like this one. It’s spiky and abrasive and reminds me, musically, of Wire or Elastica. Anna Shields’ vocals are somewhat warmer though, less disassociated than that of those bands.
The band remind me a little bit of their scene contemporaries The Van Ts who I’ve written about on the blog before. As far as I can tell (I might be wrong) it looks like the band is as yet unsigned. But I’m sure that won’t be the case for long. Definitely one to watch out for these guys.
