The newest indie mystery is UK group WU LYF (World Unite Lucifer Youth Foundation). The elusive band, who not up until recently kept their identities a secret, has been capturing the attention of everyone from Nylon to The Guardian with their unique brand. The sound? An irresistible dream pop/shoegaze backtrack with unexpected, scratching Kings of Leon-inspired vocals from the Aha Shake era.

These guys aren't going to move audio mountains, but their debut Go Tell Fire to the Mountain has certainly taken everyone by storm.


Video: Cults - "Go Outside"

Go Outside, by Cults from Boing Boing on Vimeo.


Manhattan's flavor-of-the-month Cults has just put out a new video for their single Go Outside. An interesting take on the song - I'm sure everyone was expecting something slightly more transparent from this indie-electro duo.

Their s/t is out now, check it out!
