San Francisco husband and wife duo NRVS LVRS just released their highly-awaited Cult Lite EP. One of the prime cuts is the wry but enjoyable Little Cults. Have a listen and come under their wonderfully wicked spell.
Andrew Gomez and Bevin Fernandez have their own signature sound, and why change something some good? Electro with an indie-meets-50’s aesthetic, the song has a wonderfully timeless but not retro quality. It creates an intoxicating collage of the organic and electronic, as disparate moods and energies explore the difficulties of navigating modern life where corporations and religions have more rights than people.
The duo had this to say about the ideas behind the new EP, “Cult Lite is brought to you by a world in which corporations are people, people are brands, and all that matters is the fleeting satisfaction of being aspirational. Cult Lite gives you nothing you need but everything you want. We’re different from other cults. We’re Lite! That means fun! We don’t have your best interests at heart, and all we are asking for is your unearned and unflagging devotion.”
Little Cults is out now and available to stream or download on all major platforms, including Bandcamp. Check them out over on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to discover more about the Cult Lite EP. If you’d like to support the duo directly via PayPal, click here.
