Alice Glass Says Her Solo Album Sounds Like A Kitten Eating Its Owners

The ex-Crystal Castles singer preps an LP that’s as dark as always

If you thought that the first solo album from former Crystal Castles singer Alice Glass might finally do away with the duo's characteristic gloom, well, a recent interview that she gave to i-D should dispel any worries to that effect. After telling the magazine that her decision to leave her band came as a result of a decision to "own [her] own darkness," she gave some appropriately grotesque comparison points for her as-yet-untitled LP.

Fulfilling a goal to mix "the darkness in life with pristine cuteness," she says that the record is "like a kitten eating their hoarding owners after they die." While that's pretty gross, it's also an intriguing sonic guide for an album at the very least. She says that the record will also "touch on the themes of being manipulated by others and the external pressure you feel when someone forces their will on you." You can read her comments in full, which also features some sweet shade thrown at John Lennon and the Grateful Dead, over at i-D.
