Crystal Castles Get Crystal Castle-y on New Video ‘Affection’

+

I know musicians are all literally regular human beings, and I’m the last guy to fall for the romanticization of a personal brand, but do you ever wonder what it’s like for Crystal Castles’ Alice Glass to pilot her body around in the IRL, non-brandspace? Does she ever wonder what’s for lunch? Does she climb in and out of windows every time she wants to come inside? Does she crab-walk down the street like a haunted Japanese ghost bb when she needs to go buy cigarettes? Do they have cigarettes in Canada? What kinds? I wonder if she’s ever seen a baseball game? How many pairs of jeans does she have to try on at Target before she finds the ones that fit just right? How many hoodies does she own? Has she ever hammered a nail into a piece of wood? What’s that other dude with the beard’s name again? What happens when we die?  What are numbers? How does it feel to crawl inside of a computer and never come out? Why is there something rather than nothing? What do people think of my hair? Am I skinny enough to walk outside today? What’s for lunch? Where did everything go wrong? What do you want to do for dinner? I don’t know, what do you want to do for dinner?
