Off of their newest album Amnesty (I), Crystal Castles have done it again with their single “Sadist.” Even with the introduction of new vocalist Edith Frances, the track still has the same existential and experiential tone that former vocalist Alice Glass brought out. The track starts out melancholy and hits hard with exuberant slashes of the synths. It’s this sort of contrast that makes it trance-like, with the same thematic anger and struggle that Crystal Castles has employed over the years.
