Brooklyn’s Cults are quickly turning from flash-in-the-pan favorite to a potential powerhouse of indie pop. They just released the first single from their forthcoming self titled debut record, and its another jem of a pop tune. “Abducted” presents Madeline Follin’s lovely vocals over a hazy xylophone guitar and drums, but in a marked change from the band’s much-lauded first tunes, it also uses those elements to build into a ferocious, gasping crescendo. The band’s debut will be out on June 7th on Columbia, for now it seems that at least some of the hype may be warranted.
