Cut City: Returning a decade later with a timeless post-punk sound

J.N. October 26, 2020

From the release of debut EP “Enfant Perdu” in 2005 to the sophomore record “Where’s The Harm In Dreams Disarmed” released in 2011, Gothenburg/Malmö four-piece Cut City caused a stir in the post-punk scene and earned underground attention from music media comparing the band to the ’80s sound of Joy Division and Echo & The Bunnymen. Debut album “Exit Decades” is a timeless, instantly-memorable collection of post-punk classics for a new generation coated in aesthetics that pushed their outreach beyond their practice space: striped shirts and characteristic asymmetrical hairstyles.

However, the band went on an indefinite hiatus soon after their second album, but nine years later a brand new EP called “Absolutes” turned up in our postbox, thus sending the word out there that they have returned to the scene. And they claim that the new EP “is the culmination of ten years in a semi-unconscious state followed by the pure awakening of golden souls”. Maybe we can start hoping for a third album?
