Music Feeds Podcast Episode #46 – Crystal Fighters

Crystal Fighters have busied their Australian summer schedule with a relentless string of live dates, including spots at Falls, Southbound, and Field Day festivals, and a quick run of Falls sideshows for Melbourne and Sydney, presented by Music Feeds. Ahead of these much-awaited gigs, frontman Sebastian Pringle caught up with our own Mike Hohnen for the latest Music Feeds Podcast.

Sebastian spoke to us from the bottom floor of a tour bus in Zurich, Switzerland, but assured us that he would have rather been here with us. The band are currently on a European run and Sebastian tells us that the energy from the crowds, an important factor of the band’s live show, has been good.

Asked about Crystal Fighters’ latest LP, Cave Rave, Sebastian explained that the record was the result of a conscious decision to streamline the band’s eclectic array of influences, saying, “With this record, we wanted to go in and make something cleaner, more concise than the last time.”

We finished with Sebastian telling us about the band’s love for Down Under, saying, “It was one of the most fun tour I ever went on, the Parklife tour in 2011, we can’t wait for December…it’s gonna be great, we can’t wait to be back, especially back in the full swing of summer.”
