Oamaru, located about 80 miles north of Dunedin on New Zealand's south island, might seem like the last place you expect to find a prodigious racket like Cuticles, but ain't that a kick? You just never know. Formed around the nucleus of Austen McMillian, Matthew Plunkett (ex Trendees) & Lisa Preston (Nux Vomica, The Portage) a couple years back, they've been stacking up the hits & on 'Major Works', it's time to cash in. There's 18 tracks here & Cuticles chew through'em w/abandon. Someone just yelled out from the tree next door, "Sounds like the Pastels! With guns!" One could make a case for the South Island Sound coursing through their veins (they do live there after all), for the sheer abandon-pop that gushes off these grooves, but to these ears is heard a mutant strain of Shoe This High meets The Swingers. But there are no wrong answers, just bathe in the Cuticles hyper-mesmerizing aural swirl.
