“Pop Cult are well worth your time” – Matt Wilkinson, NME Magazine
“Loving the deadpan Dandy Warhols-esque hooks amongst the irrepressibly upbeat music. Can’t. Stop. Stomping. Along.” – Dom Alessio, Triple J
“‘Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga’-era Spoon. Love that fuzz about 2 minutes in.”
– Max Quinn, Triple J
Queensland rockers POP CULT today drop ‘Feels Right’, the brand new single lifted off their forthcoming debut EP, set to be released mid 2016 via We Are Golden & Create/Control.
A band that has already earned a reputation for crafting stomping sing-alongs in the same vein as Primal Scream and The Dandy Warhols, POP CULT have harnessed the power of ‘Beggars Banquet’ era Stones on ‘Feels Right’, echoing out into the cosmos with charged piano chords, spacey guitar solos and gospel backing vocals.
‘Feels Right’ had it’s first radio play on triple j’s Home & Hosed with Dom Alessio this week. Frontman Elliot Heinrich describes the song as a “gospel jam, with a subversive social commentary.”
“We’re encouraged to be passive and accept the way things are, but our generation have more power than ever to question and change things.”
Late last year, POP CULT (Heinrich, his brother Timothy, Callum Voller and Jordan Adkins) released their debut single and video ‘Gotta Keep Lovin’’ the effect of which was immediate, with the song being described by adamNOTeve as “encompassing 90s style, pop guitars and dreamy backing vocals that melt over the top of an addictively sweet chorus. It’s a spot on debut.”
Triple J love, east coast Australian tours, and a slot at BIGSOUND all followed quickly – as did supports for the likes of Loon Lake, The Cairos and even the approval of Mac Demarco‘s mum/cult hero in her own right Agnes Demarco who declared, “My God I seriously love this song, you guys rock!”
