Crystal Castles used Trevor Brown’s artwork (depicting a black-eyed Madonna) without permission.- In one of Kath’s earliest, unreleased demos, he incorporated a sample without permission.Her foot is encased in a plastic protective walking boot.She is more active on stage now, having jumped into the crowd on a few occasions during their March 19, 2011 set in Boston, MA.Crystal Castles received great reviews and ranked #39 on NME Magazine “Top 50 Albums of the Decade”.They issued four singles: Alice Practice (1 June 2006), Crimewave (Crystal Castles vs HEALTH) (13 August 2007), Air War (17 December 2007), and Courtship Dating (31 March 2008)."Courtship Dating" was received positively by critics, with NME describing it as "synth-pop filled up with muted screams, jerking bass and sparking circuit boards" and "the best piece of humanity-loathing cyborg pop since The Knife's Silent Shout".Crystal Castles Crystal Castles is a Canadian electronic experimental band formed in 2004 in Toronto consisting of producer Ethan Kath and vocalist Alice Glass.
Ethan later discovered Alice Glass singing in a noise-punk band, and thought he had found the “missing ingredient” to his music.
The single was released on March 31, 2008 although the song had leaked in 2006.
According to vocalist Alice Glass, the song "is about human taxidermy, the idea of preserving the beauty of a lover the way you would an animal".
Crystal Castles are known not only for their own efforts as a band, but also for commissioned remixes for number of groups, including Hunting For Witches by Bloc Party, and Atlantis To Interzone by friends and label mates, Klaxons.
In mid-2008, Crystal Castles were involved in two controversies related to artwork permissions and samples in their earliest unreleased songs.The duo is known for their chaotic live shows and lo-fi melancholic homemade productions.
