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 Almodó- var, 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 full-length 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 has dropped hints of what’s to come with the release of their two new singles, “Gloria” and “Youth”.
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.
