Depeche Mode-Inspired Local Band Crystal Cadillac Releases Debut EP on Friday

If you're a fan of Cut Copy, you'll love Miami Beach incarnation Crystal Cadillac. Dark dance rockers Brett Thorngren and Gil Bitton (former lead singer of Endo) have teamed up to form the band in all of its synthy-pop goodness, and they're releasing their debut 4-song EP this Friday at the Vagabond.

They've joined forces with fellow local Ryan Evans to help with the remixes. They even give their spin to the English rockers Siouxsie and the Banshees '80s classic "Cities in Dust," combining it with their original "Love and War" and making it into what the track would sound like with a Depeche Mode and Crystal Castles collaboration-- pure synths that just make you want to dance.

If you can't wait 'til Friday, hear their EP after the jump.
