For years, Alice Glass was known as the innovative founding member and exhilarating frontwoman of the culture-shifting, goth-y electro-pop duo Crystal Castles; each track on her solo debut showcases her experience. Now that she’s free from her former band and allegedly abusive collaborator Ethan Kath, PREY//IV is an exorcism of her past suffering. “Fair Game” is haunted spoken-word techno written from the perspective of an abuser, which she has publicly labeled “trauma core.” “Pinned Beneath Limbs” explores the societal silencing of abuse survivors; “Everybody Else” is an unsettling listen, albeit offset by Glass’ angelic vocal tone—disassociation soundtracked by a child’s music box. If PREY//IV is Alice Glass’ first steps into a newfound creative freedom, she’s allowing the listener to hear what it took to get here—human pain articulated through energetic electronics.
