London-based Crystal Fighters are set to release their third studio album Everything Is My Familythis Friday, October 21st on Play It Again Sam/ [PIAS]. With praise from the likes of Nylon, Noisey, and Dazed, Crystal Fighters emerge with a work that pushes the boundaries while still remaining true to their authentic, otherworldly sound.
Today, Crystal Fighters share the anthemic new single “Lay Low” with PopMatters in anticipation of release. Highlighted by sunshine soaked guitars and harmonious vocals, “Lay Low” is the fourth track revealed from the upcoming album.
Comprised of singer Sebastian ‘Bast’ Pringle, guitar and txalaparta player Graham Dickson and multi-instrumentalist Gilbert Vierich, Crystal Fighters spent the last three years traversing the planet, reconnecting with nature, and learning to play forgotten instruments. The result “is more dancefloor, more psychedelic, more tropical, more rave, more sunshine, more pretty much everything” than anything they have done before.
Everything Is My Family is a euphoric 11-track collection featuring previously revealed tracks “All Night”, “Ways I Can’t Tell”, and “Good Girls” which collectively garnered over four million streams upon their release. As Bast says, the new album “is more dancefloor, more psychedelic, more tropical, more rave, more sunshine, more pretty much everything” than anything they have done before.
