Type the words ‘cults’ and ‘band’ into Google and you’ll more than likely struggle to come up with any result other than pages covering a certain, well-documented Manhattan indie duo. However, slightly alter your spelling and casing and behold, something new and infinitely more exciting happens. Up jumps C V L T S, a group/guy/gal we know very little about, except they/he/she is fucking great. Their/his/her previous two offerings – BLACK HOLE, HI FIVE and L V S T (check them on Bandcamp) have been getting a lot of air time recently and the newest edition, the awesome THETA DISTRACTIONS, is no exception. Endlessly shifting in sound and effect it’s an electronic journey through crystal caverns and fractal neverlands, swimming in rainbow lakes and trekking through spectral forests. We like it a lot and hope that you will do to.
