Video Premiere: Krystale – “Cold Without You”


Canadian songbird Krystale today drops her video for the beautifully lulling “Cold Without You.”

Krystale shares, “The video’s concept was based on the idea of the song, which is the absence of warmth. We decided to experiment with pale neutrals, smoke and fog to reflect the ‘cold’ feeling, and free-flowing dance to reflect the trance-like state that’s described in the song. “

Track Premiere: Krystale – “Machine”


Gearing up to soon release her new album, singer Krystale will next week (December 13) release the video for the first single, “Machine.” We are very excited to premiere the track a week early!

Krystale showcases her sultry voice on this warm track about the defensive stoicism so many of exhibit when facing love. Good music always tells it like it is.

Next Step February Winner: Krystale


[kml_flashembed movie="" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

It’s a good thing when our decision making for selecting a Next Step winner becomes more difficult. February was a great month for entries – so much so that we’re going to have an honorable mentions post next week! Canadian-Dominican singer/songwriter/producer Krystale inched out ahead of the rest and struck us with her amazingness, though. Congratulations, madame!

Krystale’s parlor style future jazz and soul vocals coax you into your own personal illusions of swanky fancy times (even in your socks and sweats) on her 2011 Reboot EP. Think a jazzier Norah Jones with a little sprinkling of Fiona Apple. Just watch the live performance for “Caught Up” above and let yourself unravel to its spell.

And the lady isn’t without versatility. Below, you can also find a more recent single of hers called “Sweet Tooth,” a slinky playful track that hinges more on the R&B side with a hard hitting track compliments of Montreal beatmaker Kaytradamus. Vocals reminding us a bit of Anne Wise from Sonnymoon here – you know that’s a win already.

Look out for Krystale’s debut full length album to drop this year – we’re gripping our seats.
