'''Crystal Castles''' is an electronica band with a sound that [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly mixes]] chiptune, electropunk, synthpop, and witch house. The band was started in the mid-2000s and was initially composed of singer Alice Glass and songwriter/producer Ethan Kath. They caused [[WalkingDisasterArea quite a bit of ruckus]] with their live shows, and often made good use of strobe lights and whatever unfortunate soul was working security. With anything they do, [[LoveItOrHateIt the reaction]] [[BrokenBase is always divisive]], though their fanbase cherishes them lovingly.

These issues were seemingly resolved when they retitled ''Insectica'' to 'Crystal Castles vs Lo-Bat', and it soon became apparent that the artist who created the {{Music/Madonna}} image was prolonging hostilities as he was benefiting from the exposure -- Crystal Castles tried to pay him for the image but he refused to provide them with the necessary details.

Their influences included [[{{NightmareFuel}} murder, blank looks on girls, and knives]].

Alice was in charge of vocals and creating havoc, and Ethan mostly did the laptop work.
