Single Review – Cults – Offering

The New York based, Indie duo of Madeline Follin and Bryan Oblivion have released their first new material in four years; their second album Static being a more direct version of the sweetened Indie Pop of their debut. Their new single ‘Offering’ is the title track of their third studio album expected on October 6th. This track features more bombastic surges via churning electronica, overlayed with resonant and frayed chords. A strong back beat and a more anthemic, layered vocal from Madeline only adds a point to the gradual driving nature of the song. The track shows their capacity to generate a multi-faceted sound without losing the crisp appeal of a single. It is a considered and well thought out track that leaves the door open for perhaps their best album yet; should they take the opportunity.
