Crystal Stilts “Dark Eyes”
Crystal Stilts have only released two LP’s in their time together dating back to 2005, but they have been more generous with 7″‘s and EPs, which they have released with more frequency during that time. Their latest release is the EP Radiant Door, off of which you can hear the song “Dark Eyes” below. Still soaked in reverb and jangly as all getup, “Dark Eyes” is a confident but mysterious track that shows the band walking their usual tightrope between noisy pop and classic garage sound, creating their own unique sound that has evolved nicely over the last few years. After being blown away by their debut Alight the Night, I was a little let down by their follow up LP In Love with Oblivion earlier this year, but “Dark Eyes” has me thinking that Radiant Door will bring me back in the fold. You can grab the EP over at the Sacred Bones website.
