Crystal Fighters is a band who learn from humanity's most ancient traditions to make music that sounds like the future. The core trio of singer Sebastian ‘Bast' Pringle, guitar and txalaparta player Graham Dickson and multi-instrumentalist Gilbert Vierich have spent the last three years traversing the planet, reconnecting with nature and learning to play forgotten instruments. They return now with a new record Everything Is My Family, which embodies their ecstatic lust for life and, as Bast says, "is more dancefloor, more psychedelic, more tropical, more rave, more sunshine, more pretty much everything" than anything they have covered before.
Lead single "All Night," which Gilbert describes as the track on the album which may remind people most of the music the band has made before, because it "brings positivity and excitement" was written in the band's adopted home of the Basque Country, where elements of their first two albums were recorded. Another big party tune is "Good Girls," which Bast says is a "classic story about a girl who turns out not to love you as much as you thought."
Dive deeper and you'll soon discover that Crystal Fighters are pushing beyond boundaries into spiritual areas that neither they nor anyone else has truly explored before. Epic cut "The Moondog" is one such example. Elsewhere on the record, the band explore new genres and sounds without losing their Crystal Fighters essence.
