Cults release a video for Right Words and Natural State
New York duo Cults share a video which features two tracks from their recent release, the critically acclaimed album Offering: Right Words and Natural State.
Shot in LA, the video is a crossover of mediums, directed by Elliott Sellers with animations by Lucy Dyson. The video follows Cults frontwoman, Madeline Follin, through a psychedelic journey of collages.
Elliot says of the making of the video, “We shot Right Words in a few hours around Griffith Park. Madeline was in LA for a wedding and we discussed getting weird with an acid-dipped strawberry picnic and classic collage techniques. Natural State was basically the come down of all the psychedelic 2D animation, existing in the real world. Long live 'Flat-Madeline.'”
The duo are travelling to the UK and Europe from late January to early February. Stopping at The Deaf Institute in Manchester and London's The Garage.
