Crystal Castles, recognized for their distinct and experimental synth sound, is set to release their new LP, Amnesty (I) on August 19 through Fiction Records.

“Char” features new vocalist, Edith Frances who brings her hauntingly mysterious aesthetics into a poetic sound, illustrating her delicacy in duo collaboration with the romantic rhythms of producer and songwriter Ethan Kath. This track evokes our curiosity about their upcoming album even more.

Char brings about a retro nostalgia in contrast to their release of “Concrete”, which resonates more with their earlier works from 2012, showcasing their brassy, bold witch house theme.
