    It's easy and fun at the expense of complexity and intelligence. It's indie for the masses. The Media industry is catching onto this marketable niche. Not that that's a bad thing, this isn't bad music (per se) and I can't speak for everyone, but there is much better music that is just as available.

    Fantastic songs that have an uncanny ability to lodge their way firmly into your head.

    Cults are excellent songcrafters, expert at boosting drama with dynamics and unexpected sounds. But what sets their music apart is feeling: the mood of wistful romance that hovers over the songs, the idea that love is an insoluble mystery.
