Soaring electro-poppers Crystal Fighters have unveiled their brand new single for your listening pleasure, and let’s just say we like it a lot. ‘Love Alight’ follows the established Crystal Fighters ‘happy dance music’ formula, but packs a punchier sound than their past glistening outings, with its quick-fire tempo laying the path for its uplifting hook and synth-laden base track. Premiering on BBC Radio 1 as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record in the World, the official video for ‘Love Alight’ has just been released too. Check it out below!
The new single arrives alongside another hectic summer of festivals for the band, who’ve been toured relentlessly since the release of their acclaimed 2nd album, ‘Cave Rave’ in 2013. Following a 40 date winter EU tour, Crystal Fighters return to festival stages for their biggest shows yet including Glastonbury (John Peel Stage), Latitude (Main Stage) and Lovebox (Noisey Stage, headliner) in the UK this summer.
