iTunes Review

In early 2010 Cults (the duo of guitarist Brian Oblivion and singer Madeline Follin) posted a single called “Go Outside” that enjoyed some well-deserved buzz. Featuring twinkling glockenspiel, a pulsating beat, layers of echo, and a terminally infectious chorus it’s a catchy and clever tune. And it’s surrounded by enough good material to prove that Cults is no one-hit wonder. The band’s appeal lies with their straightforward approach: basic drum beats, shimmering guitars, and well-placed synths and trippy samples that wrap around Follin’s sunny, sing-along vocals. Her sweet and innocent voice is in contrast to the often snide lyrics that she delivers with the kind of seductive melodrama associated with Motown girl groups and female-fronted Phil Spector creations such as the Ronettes. The other standouts, namely “Abducted”, “Most Wanted”, “Oh My God”, and “Never Heal Myself”, are bouncy and textured and coated in a gauzy sheen that injects just the right amount of mystery to the album. Overall an enjoyable debut that manages to be intriguing while delivering the ear candy.

Album Of The Year

It's unusual for a band to be so utterly accomplished on their debut and deliver an album that is both polished and lacking in filler, Cults have achieved all the above with an impressive 12 tracks on their eponymous debut. This is the sound of Summer 2011. Buy it!!


Maybe 3 stars is harsh, but this is an enjoyable debut from NY band Cults. There's a 60's feel to a lot of the songs, even though they are a sort of electro pop band. Go Outside is the best track, with a nice glockenspiel involved, so head there first and if you enjoy it delve deeper.

Cults' twinkling experimental pop arrived in a shroud of mystery early in 2010, when the group posted three songs on its Bandcamp page. One of those songs was "Go Outside," which mixed dream pop haze with girl group harmonies (and, fittingly, samples of Jonestown leader Jim Jones) and earned the band acclaim from publications including Pitchfork and NME. Eventually, Cults' core duo was revealed as guitarist Brian Oblivion and vocalist Madeline Follin, who were also a couple. Later in 2010, Cults...
