Cults – High Road


On new single High Road from Cults the slinky and sinister start lures you in with no indication of Madeline Follin’s saccharine sweet vocals that await. As is typical of the NYC band, nifty fragility and hints at intimacy are left underneath synth laden guitar pop, who are well known for their hazey strain of rock. An instinctive feel to their sound, they’ve achieved that rare thing through their low slung rhythms and well organised sprawl – they manage to feel intimate and mysterious at the same time, like a long term lover you still haven’t quite sussed out. Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion, who are Cults, have shared a self-directed thrilling album teaser which features additional tracks from Static including We’ve Got It and So Far.
