8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 18 February 2010
Don't know anything about Cut City other than that they are on a german label with a penchant for post rock/hardcore that put out a record by one of my old bands. 'Narcissus Can Wait' sounds like an evolved vision of hardcore that incorporates elements of post punk, Interpol-esque gothic pop, gaze, emo and post rock. Rhythmically the group are tight like a hardcore band yet this is offset by light, airy guitars and emotive early 80's style baritone vocals. Hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden they share a little in common with the new wave of scandinavian shoe gaze bands doing the rounds nowadays but they also have the technical proficiency and confident song writing style i'd associate with groups like Mew. Whilst sounding vaguely d.i.y and punk rock in their approach Cut City have effectively rewritten the soundtrack to Pretty In Pink to include more floaty, spaced out post rock bits and less Echo and Bunnymen moments. Sounds better than you'd think. Bold stuff i reckon.
