Crystal Fighters – ‘At Home’

‘At Home’ is the latest single from the astoundingly energetic and sickeningly hip Crystal Fighters.  A joyous voyage into mandolin infused electronic-folk awesomeness, the quintets Spanish-English breeding is in full force here to create a warm piece of swooping pop.  The chorus is a wall of vocals offset by self assured melodies and catchy phrasing set against a driving drum beat.  Contrastingly there is a grimy undercurrent to the single – a result of the juxtaposition of the bands leaning towards airy folk against their apparent fondness of electro and punk.

‘At Home’ is nugget of happiness that makes you want to walk forlornly round an empty building and chuck loo roll around. Oh wait…
