Cuts - UNREAL LP
RELEASES ON THE 4/12/20
With a clutch of deeply conceptual albums on subjects as diverse as the anthropocene and sleep paralysis after a major car accident, Cuts' latest album, "Unreal", is a cathartic and mournful meditation on pandemics, populism and disinformation.
"Unreal" is the second full-length album by musician and filmmaker Anthony Tombling Jr’s Cuts moniker. Tracks retain their emotional resonances in strong melodies and eerie vocals but there is also a hard edge to the music compared to previous releases.
"Unreal" was largely made in lockdown, as Tombling moved to an isolated house where there was no phone or internet three days before full lockdown was introduced across the UK. He soon built a routine of foraging for dinner in the morning and making music all afternoon. It marks a major departure in his output, as the first album not to be rooted in his films.
