Ominous in name but sunny in nature, Brian Oblivion and Madeline Follin are the long haired lovers better known as summery daydream-rockers Cults. Brian and Maddie met whilst studying film at New York University, they went on to form Cults, releasing their self-titled debut album three summers ago. We talk about dreaming in New York City before they take to the stage at Coachella this weekend.
