Cults, Lexington, London

There's been a huge buzz around New York duo Cults, and they're something of a mystery. Singer Madeline Follin and her guitar and keyboard-playing boyfriend, Brian Oblivion, set up their Myspace just a few months ago, with no songs, and no pictures.

Band of the Week: Arcadian Kicks

’19 Days’, the self-released, Mike Chapman produced, Charlatans funded, gem of a single from Birmingham’s Arcadian Kicks is something of a mongrel of the pop industry.
