New York indie-pop experts Cults have shared the first sounds of their second album Static. "‪I Can Hardly Make You Mine‬" finds the duo expanding on their retro-leaning sound, adding a heavier edge courtesy of Brian Oblivion's fuzzed-out guitars and some distorted organ, while Madeline Follin's reverbed vocals have a little extra of oomph thanks to double-tracking and her own god-given sass. Lyrically, it features the same kind of romance-gone-wrong content that populated the pair's 2011 self-titled debut. Stream "‪I Can Hardly Make You Mine‬" below and pick up Static on October 15 from Columbia.
