Cute Is What We Aim For - The Curse Of Curves
Ross Drummond 29/04/2007
With their upbeat spin on modern pop (read: Emo). Fueled By Ramen's fastest selling artist of all time Cute Is What We Aim For are throwing out single 'The Curse Of Curves' to coincide with their 2nd stage headlining set at Give It A Name 2007.
Taking a page out of Taking Back Sunday's book of clever lyrics, “You are shallower than a shower”, this slice of pop-emo-punk-whatever rock ticks all the right boxes (muted verses and distorted choruses) and it's sure to send those Second Stage kids at 'Give It A Name' wild. Alas as a single it doesn't quite hit the mark. The lift that should be there in the chorus seems to be missing (probably feeling, like, the world doesn't understand it man), turning an emo anthem turn to a girl scout sing-a-long.
