Cold War Kids, 12/6/2017, Emo’s, Austin, Photos – Write-up

Written and photos by James_ATX Indie rock legends, the Cold War Kids threw down an excellent performance for 101x’s Indie Xmas!

Cults, 11/12/2017, Antone’s, Austin, Photos – Write-up

Written and Photos by Bang Ho

 

Cults filled Antone’s with their slightly dreamy synth pop that approaches the shoe gaze genre but is too lively to be labeled so. The band’s mid tempo beat is combined perfectly with Madeleine’s sometimes soft and drawn out vocals that linger around out sweetly, giving us time to not just hear but feel the song. The last time I got to see Cults was SXSW 2012 at the since renamed Red 7; it was great getting to see how they’ve grown as artists in the five years but still retain their identity. Be sure to check out their new album Offering!
