Crysalice crafts filmic and evocative alt-pop inspired by retro cinema. With surrealistic soundscapes bathed in reverb-soaked melodies, Crysalice will transport you to a Malibu dream-scape of sunsets, surf and heart-break.

The Brighton based singer-songwriter has been described as having Trip Hop and Trap elements, with influences from artists such as Lana Del Rey, and fifties and sixties Americana.

In 2019, Crysalice was also awarded the Emerge Artist Development programme, by Brighton based music charity Audio Active, supported by local legend, Rag‘n’Bone Man.

Mulholland Drive

Ethereal lullaby notes twinkle icily amid deep hearty bass vibrations and slow slapping crispy conga beats that sway along the wafty, tepid auras, as sensual, dreamy and disillusioned female vocals long desperately with breathless gasps into the jazzy lounge air’s seductive and hypnotic grip.

Trip-hop meets chilled folk tones and unhurried vocal style, taking the listener on a literary and moral journey. Peaceful, gently flowing even as if makes a serious point, it sells its message with grace and poise.

Sugar Rush

Crysalice, seamlessly crafts, shimmering guitar-laden, cinematic, and evocative soundscapes and soothing yet haunting melodies, heightened by hypnotically seductive vocals.

Mt. Whitney Motel

With her haunting voice layered softly over a bed of lightly played piano keys, the single slowly introduces a atmospheric trip-hop-style production, only adding to the sombre and emotional energy of the release.
