Electronic duo Crystal Castles have been teasing a lot of new material of late, with tracks “Concrete,” “Femen” and yesterday’s release, “CHAR.” Taking a promising new direction, the trancing  track is a haunting melange of sharp beats and the light, echoing vocals of new addition, Edith Frances.

Frances replaced original vocalist Alice Glass last year following disagreements between the original pairing. With Glass claiming her experience with Ethan Kath was “frustrating” and “desperate,” while Kath trumped that Glass failed to make any heavy contribution to leading tracks, Crystal Castles surfaced to public gaze for solely bitter negativity. But after a turbulent few months, the act is back on track with the magnetic Kath-Frances collaboration and a stream of punchy new work. Along with “CHAR” comes the announcement of the act’s fourth album, “AMNESTY” which is expected to drop in August.
