Last month, the New York indie-not-indie pop duo Cults released Static, their sophomore album. And last night, they were Jay Leno’s musical guests on The Tonight Show. Performing the single “High Road” on a stage strewn with staticky TV sets, they pulled off the near-impossible feat of bringing some semblance of atmosphere to that antiseptic Tonight Show set; the rugs helped. Watch the performance below.
Static is out now on Columbia. Shout out to Carrot Top for shaking hands with the drummer; drummers never get enough love.
