Crystal Castles, Paris 2016

Crystal Castles sans Alice Glass, sa Betty Boop sous acides. Crédible? Edith Frances s’élance sur la scène du new Elysée Montmartre, désarticulée, en jogging vert kaki, chevelure hirsute et violacée. Moins dark et moins radical qu’Alice. Le groupe originaire de Toronto est “under control”, fini le chaos dramatique. Ethan habituellement dans l’ombre est en front row comme pour compenser le vide scénique et charismatique laissé par Alice.
