Get excited, niÃ±os, the release of Crystal Fighters‘ new album Star of Love is set for October 4th. You’ve already heard electro tracks Xtatic Truth and the 80 Kidz remix of I Love London to have you thoroughly wanton for more, but it wasn’t until the latest tracks, Follow/Swallow that you were salivating while waiting for this day, September 20th. ‘Follow’ brings you a different sound, a fast beat folk like track that makes you want to close your eyes in the middle of a forest and dance your heart out as soothing guitar fuses with electro beats and a multitude of voices to make something beautiful and fun. Swallow, is a more dub step sound but also a track that folks have been putting their pirating skills in overdrive trying to get their hands on. Patience, amigos, we’re almost there.
You may think you have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Star of Love, based on the handful of tracks we’ve heard but I think we’re in for a surprise. Not only will we have party beats begging to be remixed, but also a couple of oddballs that sound more like a mix between Arcade Fire and Dan Deacon’s Wham City with some Spanish flare. Don’t believe me? Check out this exclusive track, At Home, which is exactly that.
