Blog Buzz for Art Imperial's CULT OF LOVE

Imperial is able to make his voice the main attraction. The title cut is particularly impressive, with Imperial sounding like the weird love child of Bobby Darrin and The Weeknd. – Torontoist

Art Imperial's album Cult of Love is filled with sun-kissed pop tunes, the record shining brightest on the upbeat and effortless title track. Waves of dewy-eyed, surf-rock jingles are the perfect escape for beach boardwalk dreamers stuck in the city. – BlogTO’s Neighbourhood Mixtape

...from the ashes of Art’s broken heart we have Cult Of Love. Part therapy, part cautionary tale, part seductively fuzzy surf melodies to kick off the summer to. Crank it up and enjoy. – The Burning Ear (LA)

The single, along with the vast majority of the album, features a cascade of witty lyrics with religious undertones paralleled to lost love...Given this intelligent mixture of lyrics and vocals, the album easily leads audiences to listen attentively. – The Wild Honey Pie (NYC)

the timing of Art Imperial's release befits the summer something scary. Title track - "Cult of Love" - pangs of summer romance and if anything, the resultant heart break that ensues. – 1forthepeople(UK)

The album reflects the universal language of love and heart break. There are songs that are slow and yearning and others which are playful like Cult of Love. – Ride The Tempo (Toronto)

"Cult of Love" combines a distinctly vintage mix of Spector doo-wap and Motown 60's sounds with a gorgeous surf-pop jangly melody, the nearest modern comparison that instantly crops up in my mind is Tennis (if their relationship had turned sour), thumping drums and twirling guitars combine delightful with the warm vocals. – Just Music That I Like (London)
