This is cheesy. Not gonna lie. But that's okay! It's exactly as it should be. Robert Smith singing about not being in love over towering synths and Ibiza thump. It's like Crystal Castles got together with Smith and figured out how to make a song that hits every pop plot point it needs to hit. Watch out Lady Gaga, a tiny woman, a lanky dude and a somewhat out of shape goth innovator are about to jack your whole audience. No but seriously, there's room for everyone.
