And you thought the Dandys were gone? The new generation has finally arrived and they look more rock and roll than ever! Hailing from the sunshine coast of Queensland, Australia, POP CULT have released their debut single Gotta Keep Lovin', teaming up with Yourparentssextapes for the best music video I have seen this year. The track is fucking great as well! We caught up with the band to find out more; here are the 5 reasons why you should love POP CULT...
1 The video! Ah this video, you wish you were at the party, right? It looks pretty mad, and honestly, smashing a house down is on everyone's bucket list. Rumour has it Marlboro even asked to use this as their next advert! Okay maybe not, but that's how rock and roll it is. Filmed by Yourparentssextapes, the clip suits the band's cool guy spirit and sets the tone nicely: it's only rock and roll.
2 Mac Demarco's mum loves them. Yeah, you heard. The Canadian's mum Agnes has been found digging the band's vibes and with her support, there’s no way POP CULT won't start some kind of revolution.
3 So, Gotta Keep Lovin', the first single? Well, it clearly sounds like the 90's, The Dandy Warhols and more great songs from incredible bands which never found mainstream success. The track is a straightforward rock and roll tune, but it already sounds like a crowd favourite. Wouldn't look out of place on Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia.
4 POP CULT plan to steadily release a series of singles over the next year which will lead to a full LP in 2016. It means you will hear more very soon, so stay tuned, though I doubt your anticipation is lacking!
