It is August 19th 2012 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
From Toronto, Ontario, Crystalyne are certainly a band to watch out for in the music industry.
Since forming in 2011, Marissa Dattoli (vocals), Josh Given (guitar / backing vocals), Justin Niece (bass) and Scotty Blake (drums) have created an unbelievable band everyone is sure to love.
Oddly enough I actually first ran across Crystalyne's vocalist, Marissa Dattoli, when she appeared on Muchmusic's show DisBAND. Alongside her friend [and band mate], Jared, they appeared in the second season showcasing their band Good & Broken. And, although at the end of the show the judges loved them and told them they "had what it takes", the band eventually ended up parting ways.
Shortly after seeing Good & Broken on DisBAND I knew I had to get an interview with them for my high school's newspaper. So, I decided to get a hold of the band and, long story short, Good & Broken ended up being the second band I ever interviewed.
I cannot remember how I ran across Crystalyne in late 2011, but I soon realized that it was Marissa's newest band. From the first time I clicked on their Youtube Channel this band has amazed me. And, that is why their song Navigate is this week's 'Song of the Week'.
Crystalyne's debut EP, titled Navigate, was released on June 5th 2012. And, just to prove how amazing this band is, people wrote all over iTunes commenting on how incredible the EP was. It seems everyone rated the release with five stars and one fan even wrote that it is "pop perfection".
To top it off, I actually got the privilege of seeing Crystalyne live back in March of 2012 when they performed in Waterloo, Ontario. If you think their online music is incredible just wait until you see them live. Marissa has an amazing voice that fills any room and the overall live performance this band gives is astonishing.
So, it is quite obvious why their song Navigate is getting this week's 'Song of the Week' spot. From the very beginning Crystalyne have shown nothing but amazing talent and their incredibly professional attitudes will take them far.
The song, Navigate, on its own is simply beautiful. However, Crystalyne recently released an official music video for this week's 'Song of the Week', which can be found here:
