Crystal Castles

If you’ve never seen Canadian digi-pop-ravers Crystal Castles live, then brace yourself for an adrenaline rush. Radio 1 have got in there early in 2010 to bring you a live taster of their massively anticipated new album. Make sure you’re amongst the first to hear their 8-bit anarchy, bit-crushed chaos and - yes - proper big tunes, taken to a whole new level!
