Friends are the new Cults are the new Sleigh Bells. Just wait and see. Seriously, wait like 4 days. They’re playing Silent Barn this Saturday with Sam Rosen, and 285 Kent on May 21 with Dan Deacon. 6-months-from-now-you will be that much cooler for having gone.

Adult Swim has been too kind by giving us 8 different singles in the past 8 weeks. We have seen tracks from Madvillain, Washed Out, a remix of an LCD Soundsystem song, and now, a new track from Cults titled “Oh My God.”
Enjoy the new track from the Brooklyn duo below and make sure to check out the official video for “Oh My God,” along with a clip of Adult Swim’s day with the band, after the jump …

Cults are a rad musical duo from New York City. It’s lo fi and soulful; plucky bass holding down some dreamy female vocals, light keys and glockenspiel. They released a limited-run eponymous 7″ through the singles label Forest Family, but shit has been snapped up for a few minutes. Luckily the band have made the tracks available for free on bandcamp (if you don’t know it…do.) “Go Outside” is the track the internet rubs on hardest.
