More About

When "Candy Castle," the standout track from Glass Candy's album B/E/A/T/B/O/X, filters through speakers, you're immediately transported to a world akin to a grandiose '80s fantasy film with a singer who is equal parts Grace Jones, Yoko Ono, and Gina X guiding you through a land of synthesizers as epic as they are minimal. Ultra-hip duo Glass Candy straddles the extravagance of disco and the simplicity of postpunk with Johnny Jewel's synth lines flitting between lush and stark and Ida No's vocals teetering on the edge of breathy melancholy and cool detachment. In many ways, the group is more like an Italo disco-influenced Saint Etienne than a typical 21st-century electro outfit. At times, they're downright soulful, with horns swirling through the mix for a strange '60s-'80s-now hybrid. With thoughtful creativity and oodles of rhythm, Glass Candy is the band to get you dancing right now.
