Pick: Cults

November 21
Cults w/ SACCO & Mood Rings
Slowdown, 729 North 14th St.
9 p.m., $15 in advance/$17 day-of-show, onepercentproductions.com

Cults filter classic pop song forms through a lens of today's indie and electronic pop, distorting the textures of things like 60s girl groups into a distinctly cosmopolitan and modern
feel. The band is centered on guitarist Brian Oblivion and vocalist Madeline Follin, whose first recordings in 2010 led them to a quick signing by Columbia Records. The tale of the New York City band catapulting from an EP on the Bandcamp website to major label success is the new form of how bands explode in the music industry now. After a self-titled 2011 album, Cults have smartly doubled-down on their core sound on 2013's Static. The only evolution is a slight tendency to pull the saccharine sweet pop moves back to reveal a new dose of texture.
