Back in January, we covered Cull’s debut single “Good People Disappear,” describing as a band that’s “like a less verbose Of Montreal had a twisted, animalistic romp with Tame Impala and then had a threesome with Animal Collective.” Since then, they were nice enough to share the master with me for their new single “I Thought We Was” to premiere; and boy, its nice to see their style has developed exactly along those lines. Except this time I’d say its more obvious that Alcoholic Faith Mission probably liquored up that threesome to begin with.
“I Thought We Was” has mind melting, shoegaze atmospherics replete with some complex synths that reduce your mind into a hazy bliss on repeat listens. Under less capable hands, this song could have spun virulently out of control, but Cull has an uncanny talent for blending diverse instrumentation into a frothy, emotional journey without ever being lost to the bedlam that inspired the song. Their music is a beautiful experiment in pin-balling passionately through the chaos of you mind.
