Crystal Castles - A woman's castle is at her home

Crystal Castles name origins - Big Crystal Castle usaSinger Alice Glass and producer Ethan Kath form a duo that under the name Crystal Castles makes electronic music to which they add an experimental lustre.

The crystal of the band name and the glass of the surname of the singer have nothing to do with each other: the name Crystal Castles is derived from toy company Mattel, to be exact from the Crystal Castle in which She Ra lives, the leading actress of the TV series She Ra - Princess of Power.

The Toronto duo says that the band name plays along with the slogans Mattel uses to try and capture the toy castle market: ‘The fate of the world is safe in Crystal Castles' and ‘Crystal Castles, the source of all power'.

Active: 2004-present, CAN
