Weekly SNDtrack: Not in Love

The magic of music is that it can express so much without uttering a word. But, when combined with a distinct voice and lyrics it can be transcending.

For music aficionados the sound of The Cure is instantly recognizable but the lyrics make it so much better.

Robert Smith’s lyrical stories connect with people all over the globe, transcending language barriers and cultural differences. Even those who don’t speak English and don’t understand his lyrics project their own interpretations onto his songs.

Similarly Toronto electronic duo Crystal Castles is as much revered for its raw lo-fi beats as it is for the ferocious voice of vocalist Alice Glass.

Our musical pick for this week unites Robert Smith with Crystal Castles on a remix of a Platinum Blonde song titled “Not in Love.”

Enjoy.
