'LA Calling', acoustic, in a cave...
Crystal Fighters LA Calling shot

While the sun continues to shine on Britain, propelling its sporting sorts to success and convincing the general public that the birth of a royal is, in this day and age, absolutely the very highest deal, it’s right that the weather is accompanied by suitable sounds.

London-based, Spanish-born outfit Crystal Fighters are familiar with melodies evoking summer-break destinations. As if predicting the brilliant sunshine of the last few weeks here in the typically bland Blighty, the band released its second LP, ‘Cave Rave’, back in March. The very opposite of a rain dance. No doubt they’ll like to claim some credit for a scorching July.

The band has been spending its time of late working on acoustic versions of songs appearing on ‘Cave Rave’. Their first, ‘You & I’, found them playing in a cave, and can be seen here

The second clip to go public is for ‘LA Calling’, which will be the band’s next single, due for a September release. Clash has exclusive first dibs on the video, again shot in a cave. Well, when you give your album that title…

S’pretty jolly, likes. So even if the clouds are rolling in, apparently, perk yourself up with ‘LA Calling’, which can be watched above.
