Last December, Cute Is What We Aim For
reunited with their original lineup for their first show since 2009, cementing their official return and following it up with the promise of new music in 2013.
Since then, the band have dropped two new demos—"Next to Me" and "Songs For The Summer," and today we're excited to be bringing you a third, "Titanic.""This song was written and recorded in November of 2010. It was an experimental jam that I went into thinking, there are no limits or boundaries with what CUTE should sound like [except for] creating something that really put what I was feeling into a sound," explains frontman Shaant Hacikyan. "It has darker undertones but is still pop. There are dueling drum-kits in the bridge which is something I had always wanted to try, attempting a sense of push and pull."
Dueling drums and dark undertones aren't the only standout elements included, though. The track is loaded with hooky, radio-ready melodies, offering a tune that will appeal to fans of various genres while still maintaining an indie pop mentality.
And about those lyrics? "The back story to this one is one that I still don't know myself," continues Hackiyan. "It was written with hopes of finding someone that would make me feel as if I couldn't be without them. I have yet to meet that person."
