New York indie-pop rockers Cults are about to release their third album, Offering. It's the duo's first set of new material in just under four years, and finds them digging into an eclectic 80s catalogue they'd never explored before. The result sparkles like city lights seen from a distant shore.

Madeline Follin explains they took their time on this record and "learned how to be human beings." The time off has clearly served them well, as they've returned with a mature and confident sound that is explorative and shimmering.
