Cut City

Cut City formed in 2002 around the local Deleted Art label, sort of the swedish counter-part to U.S. art-punk imprints like Three One G and Tapes Records. In May 2005 they issued a 4-song EP on the california-based Gold Standard Labs label, home to such acts as The Locust, Year Future, Gogogo Airheart and many more. Drawing comparisons to groups such as Echo & The Bunnymen and Joy Division as well as newer bands like Moving Units and Franz Ferdinand they at the same time echo the past as much as the future. In February 2007, Cut City released their debut full-length, Exit Decades, through Gold Standard Labs. Following that the band ventured on a european tour in March.

Exit Decades is the effigy of tomorrow burned today. Blazing and roaring it unveils the disparate notions of uncertain caring and common disillusion that propels all life. It embraces the cultural bombs as they're dropped on someone's recluse home. As an objet d'art it pulls the rug from under an abandoned playground; a digital ephemera hailing inconsistencies and contradictions.

Despite much of similarity with the bands such as Interpol and Editors, Cut City still preserves enough flavor to be listened and enjoyed. Recommended!
