Chrystabell’s smooth as silk vocals transcend the aether as she reinvents classic Cure songs in Strange As Angels,
Chrystabell’s history of collaboration with David Lynch (including Twin Peaks: The Return), her angelic retro-tinged beauty, and stylistic bending of the time-space continuum lends a cinematic depth to her performances, compelling Collin to explore his muse’s solo potential. The vocalist chose to learn every nuance of Robert Smith’s phrasing first, before re-interpreting the tunes, unravelling the threads of the melody, and weaving her own noir gothique tapestry with them.
“For me, it was like a vision,” said Collin, “I imagined Chrystabell alone on stage, singing these songs.” Collin envisioned the arrangements as a bridge between the worlds of Lynch and The Cure; fusing strings, percussion, and the first electronic instrument, the Therminovox.
