New release | Cults


Multi-instrumentalist/singer Madeline Follin and multi-instrumentalist Brian Oblivion, have releasd their fourth studio album Host.


With praise for singles: 'Spit You Out' that Consequence of Sound compares to a “My Bloody Valentine sample,” 'Trials' that Entertainment Weekly calls “a witchy dream-pop track that channels the creepiness of an abandoned opera house" and Variety calls "remarkably atmospheric," “No Risk” that The Line of Best Fit calls “empowering,” and “Monolithic” that “merges Cults’ classic earworm melodies with the band’s new cinematic scope” (Stereogum), Host showcases that the duo is still discovering fresh layers while keeping their signature dreamy sound.

Written more collaboratively than ever before and recorded primarily with live instruments for the first time, Host marks the start of a bold new chapter for Cults, one fueled by an ever-deepening trust and a boundless appetite for growth and experimentation. The songs here are deceptively charming, with lush, airy arrangements that belie their dark, weighty lyrics, and the production is rich and multifaceted to match, blending retro and futuristic palettes into a spellbinding swirl of high-def indie rock and lo-fi bedroom pop.
