Tracklist: Elephant - Allured

When they emerged at about the same time it was comparatively easy to group Elephant and Cults together, but there's a stillness at the heart of their second single that belies that girl group referencing course. If it isn't too misleading there's the dynamics of Bon Iver at his most elegaic by way of Beach House with the synths turned down, Amelia Rives' yearning vocal mostly backed only by electric piano - it's 54 seconds until a beat appears - leading to a seductive tranquility.
