Alice is a bit of a loose canon. Her Wiki is brief, but reveals a little of her history.
As “not cool” as it may be to ponder about an artist’s future demise – whether it be their musical and/or actual demise – it’s hard to think about Alice Glass without wondering if she’s the “live hard, die young” type.
So I’m just wondering what would happen to the Crystal Castles if Alice was taken out of the equation?
It’s clear that Ethan’s choice of front woman was nothing short of brilliant. But could the Castles go on with a different lead lady?
Here’s what I’m thinking. If Alice has to be replaced, I nominate Uffie.
Uffie has been an alternative celebrity for a few years now, has a cute voice, loves to party, and even though she has the potential to make good music (see “Tthhee Ppaarrttyy“) she still hasn’t released any good solo material on Ed Banger.
What do you think, could Uffie lead the Castles?
And would Ethan’s music actually make Uffie worthwhile.. musically that is?
The keen electro-nerds probably remember this Uffie sample/remix/song by the Castles:
