Do you like surf and garage guitar styings, primitive rhythm, lo-fi ambiance, 60s girl-group vocals and a dark, brooding atmosphere? If so, give Cults a try. Cults are Brian Oblivion and Madeline Follin. The duo are former film students from California, but their current location as the East Village in NYC.
The music is moody, sleek, a bit louche. Listen to "You Know What I Mean" below, and see if you agree with me that it could be the soundtrack for a prom in a remake of Blue Velvet. Phil Spector with a handful of 'ludes?
