Cults keep a vein of yearning through out their music, being especially prevalent in these recordings, in which the melancholy is no longer veiled behind sixties girl group naivité, making way instead for a more heartfelt desperation, with gleams of glockenspiel as wistful as the vocals, barely making their way through the dark coat of guitar grime and organs. Employing more than a few tricks from the books of Spector and George Morton, the percussion and engineering is exquisite, and the mixing well-defined.
Their self-titled album debut was recently released on Lily Allen’s label.
