Cults formed in 2010 while Brian Oblivion and Madeline Follin were students at The New School. They began making music in their spare time to share with their friends, including fellow band Bedhead. Madeline had previously recorded with punk band Youth Gone Mad on the album Touching Cloth. Cults released an EP on Forrest Family Records Cults 7" with the track "Go Outside" recorded by Paul Kostabi at Thunderdome Studios named "Best New Music" by Pitchfork Media.
The band was chosen to perform at the ATP I'll Be Your Mirror festival curated by ATP & Portishead in September 2011 in Asbury Park, and also by Battles to perform at the ATP Nightmare Before Christmas festival that they co-curate in December 2011
