If life is an extension of high school, then Madeline Follin, frontwoman for NYC-based band Cults
, is the mysterious, pretty girl who smokes behind the bleachers, wears bright-red lipstick, and carries a marble-covered notebook filled with poetry. She’s effortlessly cool and can rock an A-line dress like nobody’s business. We had the opportunity to observe Madeline’s sweet sophistication in Los Angeles during her 10-month world tour (aka, her second home). She stole away from the soundcheck before a gig so we could take a peek into her suitcase and find out how she makes such haunting melodies. This photo set will make you wish this lovely homebody were your best friend!
