is ramping up for an October 6 release of their upcoming album, Offering
, on which today's Song of the Day "I Took Your Picture" will appear. Offering
will be Cults' first album since 2013, when their popular second album, Static
, was released.
If "I Took Your Picture" is any indication, their upcoming album may continue to feature the hazy-guitar and high-pitched vocals for which they are known. "I Took Your Picture" is, however, a little heavier on the keyboard than most of their previous work, and it gives the song a tighter structure than the drifting melodies from their first two albums. The lyrics are warning, reflective, and a little sad. According to a blurb on Sinderlyn, which is releasing Offering
, drummer and guitarist Brian Oblivion's favorite lyrics on the upcoming album are in "I Took Your Picture." Says Oblivion, "I think my favorite lyric is... Tinge of blue/To the end/left our hearts/With regrets/I'm learning
. That's as close as you get to a thesis statement for the album."
