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.

Customer Reviews

Worth the wait!

These songs are short enough to keep my full attention, but have enough elements within to keep my ears sonically satisfied. Only thing I can really complain about is that re album is so short. It leaves me wanting more! Well worth 7.99!

This Album Has Abducted My Ears

Honestly, it has. It makes me want to really want to go outside and listen to this song all summer. It will be one of the most wanted albums of the year. It makes me say to myself, "Oh My God." Truly, there are no bad things in this album; I want it to rave on, and on, and on.

Smart

Smart and catchy. Punk/rockabilly feel with intellience, humor, and energy.

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...
