Another month, another standout tune from Australia's most dedicated shoegaze rock team Cull. Their prior single, "Magi Fuel," launched what was to be the band's second EP, but they've since announced news that they've shifted plans toward an album release in early 2015. With this LP very much on the way, the four-piece recently released its second single, "Nasty Drought."
The track details the process of shifting from creative blocks to the relief when "the drought breaks. The way Cull portrays emotion and challenge via music is spot-on, with that lazy, despondent guitar-driven rock replaced by a much more fluid sound toward the track's finale.
Another highlight: I have finally been able to shed the lazy Tame Impala reference, a fact I'm almost as happy about as the track itself. Cull is an altogether different species!
