Back in January, we suggested you keep your eyes and ears on Cults, the cryptic NYC duo that set innumerable music websites aflutter with its dreamy, slightly creepy single “Go Outside.” Cults capitalized on the unabashed internet love, signed with Columbia Records, and now the self-titled debut LP drops on June 7th. In advance of the record’s release, Cults have released “Abducted,” a ’60s throwback rocker (think a buzzed out Shangri-La’s track) that features vocals from both band members, Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion. The jam is earnest, structured, and catchy.
While not quite as “out there” as “Go Outside,” Cults maintain the aura of mystery and creepiness by crafting a pop-rock love song and calling it “Abducted.” If their record is filled with tunes like this, these two can lure us into the back of a van any day.
Get “Abducted” below.
