At just 22 years old, Crystal’s career already holds a number of stand-out achievements. Her 2020 EP, "I Was Wrong," positioned her as a mercurial star, expanding the boundaries of neo-soul with taut, yet tapestry-like lyricism and intoxicating soundscapes – a project she began writing at only 15. "BOSS," became an instant banger after a slick COLORS Studio performance – a shimmering love letter to sisterhood, leading into her frenetic second EP, 2022’s "Twisted Bases."

She recently announced her highly anticipated debut album, titled SAD LOVERS & GIANTS, available to pre-order now. The album news lands alongside an incredible new single “STARMANIAK” - an anthem for anyone who feels they’ve been walked over. The second single from her forthcoming album, the track is produced by Grammy Nominated producer Kyu Steed (Amaarae, Kojey Radical, Babyface...) It’s an addictive and frenetic alt pop track and it’s with this dynamic new sound that Crystal continues to document her artistic evolution.

SAD LOVERS & GIANTS is the first album of an assured young artist that, though only 22, is done with playing to expectations - it’s an adult tale. “I'm moving away from personas, to make a clear statement that this is me,” says Crystal. “My music can be tragic and theatrical, cinematic and massive – but it is all me.”
