Published Feb 23, 2016It's been a few years since we've heard from Madeline Follin's pop-geared Cults, but the singer has announced she's making music in a new band with her Guards-fronting brother Richie James Follin. Fittingly, they're using the family name for this latest project, simply called Follin.
The brother/sister duo's debut single, "Roxy," was debuted today (February 23) through Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show. A drum machine-driven piece of glitzy electro-pop, replete with distorted vocals and synth-work, it can be streamed down below.
A press release from the band explains that the brother and sister had been meaning to properly record music together for years, but their busy schedules with their other projects had got in the way. Last summer, they managed to squirrel away some time together to write some tunes. Recording sessions took place at Bushwick, NY's Stockholm Syndrome Sound studios and the siblings' mother's living room in New York City.
Though details have yet to be revealed in full, a self-titled two-song release is due late this year via Father/Daughter Records. It's as yet unclear if this will include "Roxy."
Madeleine Follin's last full-length release with Cults was their 2013 collection, Static.
