1. Product Details

Cults were deep into the process of recording their fourth full-length LP when singer Madeline Follin let a secret slip. At the time it seemed inconsequential just a passing comment amongst friends but in the end it would prove to be a monumental revelation one that would change the acclaimed New York duo forever. In the past Id never brought my own music to the table because I was just too shy says Follin but at some point during the sessions I mentioned that Id been writing some songs on the side and our producer Shane Stoneback asked me to share them. When Shane and I heard what Madeline had written we couldnt believe it says multi-instrumentalist/singer Brian Oblivion. The music just floored us. What followed was a radical reimagining both of the bands sound and its dynamic and the result is Cults utterly mesmerizing new album Host. Written more collaboratively than ever before and recorded primarily with live instruments for the first time the collection marks the start of a bold new chapter for the band one fueled by an ever-deepening trust and a boundless appetite for growth and experimentation. The songs here are deceptively charming with lush airy arrangements that belie their dark weighty lyrics and the production is rich and multifaceted to match blending retro and futuristic palettes into a spellbinding swirl of high-def indie rock and lo-fi bedroom pop. As its title suggests Host is an exploration of the sinister dynamics at play in a parasitic relationship but rather than dwell in the discomfort the record charts a cathartic journey towards freedom and self-reliance reveling in the power that comes from standing your ground and declaring independence in the face of exploitation and manipulation. Writing these songs helped me learn to be okay with putting myself out there with having the confidence to express what I want and what I wont accept when it comes to personal relationships says Follin. In a funny sort of way the music helped me find my voice in the band too.
