Hottest Record - Crystal Fighters - You & I

Zane Lowe | 19:22 UK time, Tuesday, 23 April 2013


After teasing out their highly anticipated return with 'WAVE' a taster track that surfaced online a few weeks back, CRYSTAL FIGHTERS reveal 'YOU & I', their first official single taken from their recently announced new album 'Cave Rave' (r/d 27th May).

The band's headline show at KOKO on Thursday 23rd May was an instant sell-out and they've just announced a full UK tour later in the year, including a date at Brixton Academy on Friday 22nd November. Summer festival dates to be announced shortly.

To record 'Cave Rave', the UK band relocated to the hills of the Basque Country - a region integral to Crystal Fighters' sound and the inspiration for their debut album 'Star Of Love' before decamping to Los Angeles to record with Grammy-nominated producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck/Air/M83).
