Former Crystal Castles singer Alice Glass reemerged last week with her second solo single “Without Love,” which following last year’s “Stillbirth.” Today, she surprised us with a self-titled EP of pained, distorted electro-pop. Some of its more dissonant experimentation is reminiscent of Grimes, while the dark but upbeat “Forgiveness” and “Blood Oath” hark back to Glass’s time with Crystals Castles.
Glass exited Crystal Castles in October 2014, accusing founding producer Ethan Kath of manipulation and abuse. The group has since continued with new singer Edith Frances.
