warsawpactla Discovered Exit Decades back in 07 and absolutely loved it. It, and the band, disappeared from my radar for years until I found out about their reunion. Cut City has been a major influence for our band (Warsaw Pact), very glad to see the boys are back 🖤 Favorite track: Utopia, 1974.

This is a track from our upcoming EP called ABSOLUTES. We sincerely hope that you enjoy this first song we've recorded in over ten years. We're extremely proud and we feel it's a genuine representation of what Cut City sounds like in 2020.

We decided to have a price tag on this track (all of our other music here is free). Why? Well, we're all greatly fond of physical formats and we hope to generate a couple of pennies to help us on the way to manufacture 12" copies. Sounds great right? Want to help out? Click click click.


UTOPIA, 1974

On time we were always counting to be
Yeah on time slowly letting the grip
Throw it to the side of the picket line
Waiting for a cause
Throw it in the air embracing despair
Leaving for a different cause

In the winter we sell our souls
In the winter we run

Aware we were always thinking we were
Only in prayers do we even come close
Choke on our words as we try to spit them out
Blessed by a higher call
Dumb becomes more numb when we believe
Blessed by a higher call

In the winter we sell our souls
In the winter we run
God knows we fail again

What is this silence that sprung from a different time
Are we fighting giants or running in defiance
There’s blood on the floor
Who’s up for more
Painting it by numbers
Come carry on


released August 2, 2020
Music by the boys. Words by a boy.

Recorded at Storm & Klang, Gothenburg by Cut City and Kristian Anttila, March 2020.
