BIOGRAPHY
Th e B r o o k l y n d u o C u l t f e v e r
creates sound in 35mm and Dolby-surround, sweeping wide shots, urgent dissolves and auteuristic composition, reminiscent of the brooding, surreal worlds of
Almodóvar, The Man Who Fell To Earth,
and Tim Burton. You don’t just hear Cultfever; its music plays out before you like
a moving picture, helmed by its dual directors, Tamara Jafar and Joe Durniak.
The pair formed the band quickly after
meeting in 2010, sensing an immediate
chemistry, and released a self-titled fulllength in 2011 as well as the Animals EP
in 2013. Playing SXSW, CMJ, Northside,
and other leading industry festivals, Cultfever earned praise for both its fiery live
show (which includes Ignacio Rivas Bixio on drums and Jafar and Durniak on a
combination of vocals, synths, and guitar) and the recordings, with singles “Knewyouwell” and “Collector” propelling
the band into the CMJ Radio Top 200.
Writing and recording together in
their personal studio, Jafar and Durniak share an obvious bond, describing
their relationship as “chosen family.” Now, putting the finishing touches on
the second album, the band is releasing the new single, “Gloria,” a riveting, beat-driven pop anthem that bursts
with dark overtones and moments of
blissful synthetic light. Listen, and you
can see and feel just as much as you
hear; colors swirl, nights fall, suns rise,
the spotlight reveals, shadows pervade.
The conceptual and sonic density of Cultfever’s music rewards repeated listening,
like discovering something new in a film
you’ve seen dozens of times. You listen
in stereo but you perceive in 3D, synapses firing, roulette wheel spinning, urging
you into its world.
