This video for 8-bit crew Crystal Castles’ “Courtship Dating” is basically deeply shadowed footage of Alice Glass singing and being angsty (biting her hoodie string, gnawing her finger, looking dark and bummed) with flashes of her multi-instrumental compatriot Ethan Kath rocking it. Not much to the clip, but totally captivating. We’ve mentioned the Torontonians’ disorienting live-show strobe light, so if you’re susceptible to those sorts of Tony Conrad flickers, close your eyes while you listen.
We could watch an hour of that. If you wanna keep the melancholia going, chase it with “Graveyard Girl.”
