A bit about the band...

The Cutaway are six twenty-somethings from Wimbledon, London with a passion for music, and for doing things a little differently. Drawing inspiration from a host of influences the Cutaway have developed a unique sound and a ferocious live set. Turning heads and pricking up ears across London’s unsigned circuit with their eclectic set and a variety of instruments.

Other escapes include: playing an impromptu set to a carriage-full of drunken Halloween revellers on the Northern Line, busking next to the painted golden man in Covent Garden; being filmed on CCTV chasing round their old school for a music video; becoming part of an interactive game on Ch4’s website and locking their singer in a cupboard to record vocals for the EP.

After several months rehearsing new material in a chilly garage, the band turned two bedrooms, a staircase, a bathroom and a large cupboard into a live studio and, over one snowy weekend this winter, set to work recording their new EP, Golden Opportunities: From the raucous title track, Golden Opportunities; the foot-stamping Never Been Alone; the horn-driven Skin & Bones; the ethereal Avalon; the epic Youth & Beauty; to the delicate and thoughtful Tunnels, the 6 tracks are typically diverse, yet unified by their shifting dynamics, intelligent lyrics, soaring harmonies and interwoven instrumentation.

Stuff they like:
The Decemberists, Arcade Fire, Metric, Wolf Parade, Nada Surf, The Most Serene Republic, Tea, Dinosaurs, Latitude Festival, The Northern Line, New York, Horror Movies, Curry, Cormac McCarthy, Jurassic Park, Films with soundtracks featuring Brian Adams, William ‘The Bard’ Shakespeare, quoting Family Guy and taking credit for the laugh, Face-paint.

Great stuff

I've loved these guys for about 5 years now, I think their sound has changed quite a bit but I really enjoy their music and I'm really glad I bought this album.


This is an amazing EP! I hope to hear more from these guys in the future!
