Crystal Fighters

French fashion and music label Kitsuné boasts a lengthy laundry list of electro indie rock giants, among them Boys Noize, Bloc Party, the Whitest Boy Alive, Hot Chip, and many others. So it should come as no surprise that Spain's Crystal Fighters, a folktronic band that cleverly combines Basque folk instruments with drum loops, heavy synths, lilting vocals, and a rocking stage show happily joined their ranks in 2008. Only it took me just a few days ago to find out who they were and to have their sound completely envelop me, thanks to a random video on vimeo featuring their track At Home. Better late than never they say and in this case im thankful. enjoy the folktronic sounds of Crystal Fighters.


and a quality Jools Holland live performance to showcase their entertaining stage presence.
