Cults, Small Black, Sun Airway 

When: Thu., March 10, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $10-12

This summer will be an interesting one for Cults. Almost exactly a year ago, the anonymous New York duo of Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion put four songs on the Internet—led by the aestival anthem "Go Outside"—and followed the subsequent online buzz to big tours, a five-piece band and a major-label contract with Columbia Records. Cults' self-titled debut LP, scheduled for May release, maintains the band's mix of clever, complicated arrangements muted by the sort of warm lo-fi production that defined the greatest girl groups. But the beats seem too small for either indie dance parties or mainstream radio, meaning Cults will either change the way your FM dial sounds this summer, or be chillwave's first victim of major labels hopping trends too soon. The fantastic, audacious Sun Airway opens with Small Black. —Grayson Currin
