Couple film students moved to NYC and came up with a handful of haunting, poppish, chilling, driving songs that are gaining fanbase faster than a cigarette burn. Scary minor chords, layered child like choirs of poltergeist themes, with hard pop hooks. Smokey lounge meets esoteric techno pop. Seems "Go Outside" is getting a lot of attention off their new 7", but "The Curse" makes me a convert. Feels like a baptism @ The Amityville House. Within a year this duo grabbed themselves a deal with Columbia Records and are doing mammoth, non stop touring. Check 'em @ SXSW or a town near you! They are coming! So will you!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cults will be touring the country with the likes of Small Black and Sun Airway.
