Bio

After the smashing success of debut single ‘Brick Red Heart’,
Start Your Own Cult keeps the fire burning with their latest hit ‘Ghost of California’.
Recently featured on Triple J / Unearthed Radio Shows such as “Short. Fast. Loud.” and
“Tops”, in addition to selling out live shows like Lazy Bones and being added to over 85
Spotify playlists, much less receiving exclusively positive blog reviews and impacting a
global market; ‘Brick Red Heart’ clearly serves as a beacon which highlights the sheer
strength of a platform that Start Your Own Cult has created for themselves.
‘Ghost of California’ is a powerful Pop Punk / Alternative Rock track with Electronic
elements that are sure to leave you with a newfound appreciation for how this band has
modernised the Rock genre. Between Sarah (singer), Josh (guitarist), Alex (backup
singer/bassist) and Evan (drummer), alongside the expertly skilled Gregory Stace
(producer/mixing engineer); Start Your Own Cult has managed to provide us with
catchy hooks, a fun childish taunt, a stellar Chorus, dynamic flow, and the unexpected
vocal talents of other band members. This song brings your secrets back to life by
addressing sordid regrets from your past, in line with the places you once visited; i.e.,
the lack of an escape “on the brink of paranoia”; conflicting personalities “you’re a
beast, I’m a savage”; and the unavoidable self-torture of denying reality “fake all you
want but it’s gonna burn”.

Another sharp indicator of what SYOC can do. RedHook, Stand Atlantic fans need to get on this.

it's such an emphatic blend to hook you in and give you this massive dramatic rock boost with a kooky edge that i'm digging.
