Cults-Go Outside

This single has been out since last spring however, it has just recently caught my ear.

The artists are rather unheard of and up until recently have had little to no internet presence –besides their Band Camp page which states that they are a boy/girl duo from New York and their Official Page which states they have an album set to release in just a few days, June 7th 2011!

And of course, their internet presence is slowly building with articles on their tracks and videos from live performances–check ’em out.

However, despite the sparse details and developing information, what we do know about them is that they have a great track from their upcoming album called Go Outside.

The band seems to play on their “Cults” name by featuring a quote from one of the ultimate cult leaders, Jim Jones, in the opening of the track.

“To me, death is not a fearful thing. It’s living that’s trecherous”.

However, what would seem to be the introduction to a rather sinister song–the track turns completely playful and fun. The tune combines a melodic xylophone cutting through the track, a lazy-groovin’ bass line and catchy sing-a-long vocals.

The lyrics are also uplifting as they tell the listener ,“I know you want to hole up and sleep the light away” but hey, go outside I’ve been there before and it’s a rather good time –sleeping in is just killing opportunities.

So for a song that is great for the start to summer check out Cults-Go Outside, and be sure to grab their album which hits stores June 7th–great duo to discover!

    I just saw this post today, which is great, since their album was just released. I got a copy on Amazon. Please continue to blog about excellent, relatively unknown artists! It’s a pleasure to find excellent music that has yet to hit the mainstream and to support the artists!

    Namaste.

      Thanks so much for reading, Matt!

      I certainly will! I’m working with a few great unknown artists for my internship! Thanks for your support.

    I just got this album in the mail yesterday, and I must say that I am incredibly pleased! It’s awesome from start to finish, with a great vibe throughout. I haven’t listened critically yet (quietly with headphones in a distraction-free environment), but so far I am thoroughly impressed. Thanks again for the recommendation!
