Cutaways release their debut album Earth and Earthly Things on Monday 6th July 2009 on download and CD digipak, preceded by the download single Milo of Kroton on Monday 11th May.

Cutaways are a synth-driven indie-pop trio from Belfast. Paul McIver sings, plays guitar and believe it or not, has never taken a dance lesson. Grace McMacken sings, plays keyboards and cuts her own hair. Ryan Simpson plays drums and looks better than he should while doing it.

In 2008, Cutaways released the Start Stop! Start Stop! EP, receiving airplay from Colin Murray on national Radio 1 and rave reviews from the likes of Artrocker magazine. Cutaways took their vibrant live show all across Ireland, as well as London, Glasgow and Liverpool with the gigs featuring anything from impromptu puppet shows to ‘rap’ cameos. The band’s puppet counterparts also starred in the video for Lovers Are Lunatics; and Blue Bird, Yellow Bird and Red Bird from the EP’s artwork sprung to life terrorizing the streets of Belfast in the video for I Don’t Understand What You Don’t Say.

Cutaways also recorded a BBC Radio 1 Introducing session, and the band finished the year playing to a ‘capacity’ crowd in a one-bedroom flat on New Years Eve.

2009 promises to be a colourful year, with Ireland’s Hot Press and AU magazines both naming Cutaways as one of the bands to watch in the coming year; while in March the band made their first TV appearance on regional ITV1’s UTV Live at The Limelight.

Their 11-track debut album Earth and Earthly Things is a superb introduction to the delirious and dizzying world of Cutaways; merging infectious indie pop-rock with pounding synth soundscapes and boy/girl harmonies.
