Cults Share Video for “Right Words” and “Natural State”

by the partae




Today New York duo Cults share a video which features two tracks from their recent release, the critically acclaimed album Offering: “Right Words”

and “Natural State.” Shot in LA, the video is a crossover of mediums, directed by Elliott Sellers with animations by Lucy Dyson. The video develops from natural to surreal scenes, following Cults front woman Madeline Follin through a psychedelic journey of visually engaging collages. Elliot says of the making of the video, “We shot Right Words in a few hours around Griffith Park. Madeline was in LA for a wedding and we discussed getting weird with an acid-dipped strawberry picnic idea and some classic cut-up/collage techniques. Natural State was basically the come down of all the psychedelic 2d animation, existing in the real world. Long live ‘Flat-Madeline.’”

“On the third album from the bedroom-pop duo, Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion turn their faces toward the sun with songs fuller and brighter than ever before.” Pitchfork

“On Offering, the band has transitioned from doo-wop lilts about heartbreak to spaced-out melodies on hope.” Under the Radar

“Offering is a well-crafted album and the perfect soundtrack for summer nostalgia.” BUST

After a run of North American dates this past Fall, the band are set to head to the EU shores later this month into February. A full rundown of dates can be found below.

While Cults made their name in black and white as a pair of film school dropouts who burst onto the New York scene in 2010 with a perfect single and a darkly retro sound, their latest Offering is an exciting collection of songs exploding with heart, confidence, shimmering melody and buzzing life – an album we can surely expect to translate into a thrilling live performance.
