Lookbook’s beatmaster steps out to the forefront with his latest project, Grant Cutler & The Gorgeous Lords. Fans of the electro-pop duo are in for a surprise - Cutler’s solo material is a clear departure, better-suited for lying alone on your bedroom floor than the dance floor. The timeless sound, accompanied by his capable baritone and sparse guitar, brings to mind a spacey, epic version of Leonard Cohen, or a contemporary take on ‘70s pop balladeer Scott Walker. Whether performing solo or with his venerable backing band, rounded out by members of The Plastic Constellations, Askeleton and Brutal Becomings, Cutler’s strong, plaintive songwriting is the focal point - and shockingly serious coming from the man behind some of the hottest dance tracks in town.
