Recently, Cults announced that they’d be releasing ‘Offering’ – their first new album since 2013’s ‘Static’ – on 6th October via Sinderlyn.
Now they’ve also shared ‘I Took Your Picture’, a slice of shimmering pop which takes their retro-pop in a bit of a different direction. With a couple of scuzzy guitar motifs added, it’s reminiscent of some hard-edged New Wave bands, with a light touch added thanks to the gliding vocals.
Speaking of the new track, the band said: “I Took Your Picture was inspired by falling into a deeper love with 80’s power pop bands like The Motels and The Cars. It’s a song about fleeting moments and how we let past feelings interrupt the possibility for good things to happen. “Tinge of blue, to the end, left our hearts, with regrets, I’m learning.” It’s a daily struggle to try and stay open and available but it’s probs worth it. And you can dance to it!”
