Though they only reside right across the Hudson River, Cults, the NYC indie pop group had never played a show in Jersey City. The lack of venues played a small part in that, but now boasting a few places to perform, they graced WFMU’s Monty Hall on Friday, April 20th for a very intimate show.

Still supporting their 2017 albumĀ Offering (we last saw them at MHOW last October), the duo of Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion (with a trio of live members to fill out the sound) gave a good dose of the new album after first getting through a bout of technical difficulties on Oblivion’s end. There is a vibrancy to the new material that jumps out and grabs you, whereas the dreamy qualities of their earlier had a lulling, peaceful feel.

[music video]: Cults – High Road

“High Road” is a single off Cults new album Static which comes out October 15 via Columbia. The video is perfectly shot in black and white.

The song seriously keeps getting better and better with every listen. It doesn’t quite jump out at you at first, but on multiple listens it just connects with you. These guys have found ways to take their sound to an even more sturdy and mature sound.

[new]: Cults – High Road

By Will Oliver, September 4th 2013 — with 1 comment

Cults latest track to be shared from new album Static is the lush “High Road.”

It’s a dreamy little track that is relaxing and instant. It’s got a easy going pace that just surrounds you and keeps your head bobbing to the funky bassline. I’m enjoying this even more than “I Can Hardly Make You Mine”, the other song from the album that we heard.

Enjoy it below.

[new]: Cults – I Can Hardly Make You Mine

By Will Oliver, August 13th 2013 — with 1 comment


Cults are back with a new song titled “I Can Hardly Make You Mine” and it hits a lot harder than I would have expected. There’s a new found focus on psych-rock elements and a more than satisfying vocal performance from Madeline Follin. Cults have dove into some lush production, and the results are quite delicious.

Enjoy “I Can Hardly Make You Mine” below. It’s off their new album Static which comes out October 15 via Columbia.

Cults Announce New Album: Static

Cults - Static

Cults have seemingly been touring for their debut album forever. They’re new album was long overdue, good thing that they just announced their new album today. It’s called Static, and it comes out October 15 via Columbia Records. Cults themselves produced the album along with help from Shane Stoneback (who worked on the debut) and Ben Allen.

They released a teaser trailer for the album that features 2 new album tracks: “We’ve Got It” & “So Far.” The latter sounds epic as well. Watch it below.

Grizzly Bear, The Antlers, Cults @ Terminal 5 (December 14, 2012)

By Will Oliver, December 15th 2012 — with 1 comment

Grizzly Bear, The Antlers, and Cults got together (as well as Sleigh Bells – but I had to believe before their set) to play a special benefit show for Hurricane Sandy relief. All played short but effective sets that featured the best of their material, set to please all of those in attendance. It was an incredible lineup that put on a memorable show that went towards a good cause. What’s not to like?

Cults @ Governors Ball (June 24, 2012)

By Will Oliver, June 26th 2012 — with 1 comment

Cults have grown since their set last summer. The band ripped through Governors with ease, sounding more confident and fuller.

Madeline Follins’ stage presence has improved, as she won me over immediately. Like their music, their live show isn’t breaking new grounds. What it lacks in that department it makes up in a good old fashioned music. It was a highly enjoyable set. Cults should only continue to grow as they rack on more performances.
