Cults – Lee’s Palace – NXNE 2011
Sometimes an unknown buzz band lives up to, some fail and others exceed expectations. New York based indie-pop group Cults definitely fall into the latter category.
During NXNE we heard some friends commenting that Cults should be seen, so we thought we’d check them out at their Lee’s Palace set.
We were thoroughly impressed by what we saw and heard.
Lead singer Madeline Follin has an outstanding voice, able to belt out a number or softly lull the audience to hang on every note. Backed by bandmate Brian Oblivion and a three piece touring band the whole package won over the audience during their all too brief 40 minute set. I look forward to seeing more from this group
