Sonya Bender of Crystal Sister is ready to take the leap onto your ipod with her self-titled EP, out October 3. But before we get to sample all the goods we get a little taste with the release of her first two tracks: “Take my Hand” and “Suicide Love”. Take a listen below and let us know what you think!
This lo-fi/dream/synth pop project is a lyrical and vocal vision that is an aesthetically pleasing journey through the joy and heartbreaks of relationships. Through the collaborative efforts of Bender and producer Daniel Luttrell (Sky Ferreira and Nikka Costa), Crystal Sister successfully bridges the gap between the genres of lo-fi chill wave and ethereal pop.
Bender’s vocal talents and songwriting prowess are prominent throughout. Bender has rediscovered the intimacy and vulnerability that music can express and the bond that it can create with the listener. Appropriately, these are songs that should be listened to, not just heard.
Also expect the release of the first single “Inside my Heart” shorty.
