"It's hard to believe a band like POPCULT hails from the American Midwest (Denver, CO). With sounds nostalgic of alternative brit-pop in its heyday (e.g. young Coldplay, early Muse), one would assume the band originated overseas, where they'd at least be old enough to buy a drink.
The band started in late 2010 backing Denver based electro outfit 'The Chain Gang of 1974,' recording demos in the back of a tour van. Months later, Renaud and his bandmate Tyler Venter decided to focus on their own project. After a very successful digital release of their debut EP last July, (with over 1000 downloads in the first two months) they've managed to stir up some attention in their hometown. Now a four-piece, the band has already started pre-production on their second release.
