Out and About: Crystal Fighters at Music Hall of Williamsburg

    In a recent interview, I asked Sebastian Pringle what someone could expect from a Crystal Fighters live show. He said to expect a lot of dancing and "a big euphoric mixture of music." Pringle definitely didn't disappoint, as the English quintet stormed through Music Hall of Williamsburg last Wednesday night, playing their original blend of Basque folk and deep bass electronica. The live percussion and acoustic instruments, including a txalaparta, kept Crystal Fighters from being just another electronic group. Songs like "Plage" and "Follow" blended these acoustic parts with heavy dance rhythms to both make the crowd dance their brains out and develop interesting melodic ideas.

    The harmonious chants of lead singer Sebastian Pringle and vocalist Mimi Borelli drove the beat on "Champion Sound," but nothing could top the energy of Crystal Fighters' hit "I Love London." Complete with singalong sections, catchy hooks and an unending beat, the Crystal Fighters sound was perfect for making the floor shake with hollering and dancing. Check out pictures below, and head here to see our review of their acoustic set the next night at Soho House.
