Cult Image - Little Black Cloud
Newcastle based 4-piece Cult Image may share a sound reminiscent of fellow New Wave/post-punk revivalists The Horrors, but thankfully the band didn't have to go through a "halloween punk" phase to reach that stage.
Their track "Little Black Cloud" takes its influences from fellow Geordies Maximo Park, as well as bands such as The Smiths and Joy Division, with distorted guitars and enigmatic, dark romantacism being lyrical order of the day. I'm sure that everyone has had a little black cloud that's shielded them from the sun.
The track will be released on a split 7" on September 10th on Splash One Records.
