Crystal Stilts- "Dark Eyes"

New MusicadminComment

A new track from the band Crystal Stilts. This New York band dropped one of my favorite albums of this year, so of course I'm excited to hear the forthcoming EP this track comes from. The title will be Radiant Door, and it's slated for a November 15th release via Sacred Bones.

This band's music has always been covered in an eerie, hazy, and Velvet Underground-esque vibe, but the hand claps and acoustic guitar on this track, "Dark Eyes," is an unexpected and refreshing change of pace.

The song doesn't really stand out past the effects, but that usually is the case with Crystal Stilts. One or two extra listens are needed to get the full scope of what they're offering.
