Introducing – Cults

Cults announce their return with a new album, Offering, out Friday 6 October. The album marks their first since 2013’s Static, and with that have shared the LP’s title track ‘Offering’. Listen below!

On the single, the band note, “We had been working on a lot of songs for a long time and when this one came together it felt like a release. We were trying to make a jam about finding hope in what can seem like a hopeless situation. It’s hard these days to feel like you’re being heard, or like the people who might hear you care enough to look outside themselves and help you.”

The core duo remains the same and both still live in New York, Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion took their time, going through a few dozen discarded demos before arriving on a pair of songs that felt special. Once they had a direction, Follin and Oblivion enlisted longtime engineer Shane Stoneback to help guide the sessions, letting the material develop naturally.

Offering is an exciting collection of songs exploding with heart, confidence, shimmering melody and buzzing life. At the same time, it goes places Cults haven’t gone before. Pink Floyd was a big inspiration, freeing up the band to try new song structures and play with vintage synths. To pre-order Offering click here.
