Crystal Stilts New Album & Tour dates
aaamusic | On 07, Apr 2011
Crystal Stilts have met their perfect match by signing to indiepop label du jour Fortuna POP! who celebrate 15 years as a label this year – and what a way to celebrate. Crystal Stilts’ new album In Love with Oblivion will be released in the UK on 11 April 2011. This follow-up to their much loved and critically acclaimed debut Alight Of Night continues their foray into spooky 60s psych and 80s dream pop but this time with more flourishes of melody and a bigger, more expansive sound. The album will be preceeded by a single from the album “Through The Floor” in March.
Based in Brooklyn (via Florida), Crystal Stilts emerged alongside the active local post-punk indie scene in 2008 whilst forging their own unique path. They built up a heady following stateside and by the time Alight of Night was released in the UK, a flood of accolades followed. In Love With Oblivion sets the bar even higher as they reach dizzying, fuzzy heights as first class purveyors of haunting, atmospheric post-punk pop.
