Buoyant and catchy with a tinge of punk thrown in for good measure.

Biography

There’s no pretense surrounding Cut Throat Kids; their primary concern is simply to entertain, to reach an audience looking for sharp, catchy and concise pop/alternative songs that instantly grab your attention and don’t let go until they’re finished.

Their sound refined and their ambitions big, the foursome have already begun to establish a burgeoning reputation, playing shows in and around Ontario. The band is comprised of (in alphabetical order) drummer Calvin Castellino, bassist Nick Chang-Fong, guitarist Jeff Raposo and vocalist Tyler Tasson, all hailing within the Toronto city limits.

The band’s cohesiveness (along with their uncanny ability to read each other onstage and in the practice space) results in an energetic and professional live performance. When you go to see them, you get a band whose attention to craft, youthful exuberance, and practiced approach to live music is instantly apparent.

“…buoyant and catchy, with a tinge of punk thrown in for good measure” – Chris Clay, The Mississauga News

“…they successfully pull off a set of fun songs that follow unconventional formulas and rhythms…their music doesn’t sound like Josie and the Pussycats pop. There’s a lot of rock ‘n’ roll edge that is greatly appreciated.” – Sheena Lyonnais, TorontoMusicScene.ca

“Catchy melodies that wander your head for ages. Cut Throat Kids bring back the music that you cant wait to listen to over and over again!” – Jessica Di Loreto, Acid City Magazine

Winner of the Toronto Independent Music Award for Best Punk Band 2009/2010

Winner of the Protools Presents “Avid’s Band to Watch” juried competition 2009

Recipient of a FACTOR Demo Award Grant 2009/2010

Lyrics

Already Gone

Written By: Tyler Tasson

Already Gone

V1: I’m like plaster baby, back against the wall
Stomach settled, now I’m ready for the fall
Bring it forward maybe now I’ll take it all
Do it slowly ‘cause I know I’ll break it all, hey

V2. Bake it baby buttered, like you wanna make it squeak
Back up on the table, cause your knees are feeling weak
When its over, only hardly hit your peak
And you do it baby, do it tongue inside your cheek

Pre-Chorus: I’m already gone, whoa, whoa hey
I’m already gone, whoa, whoa hey

Chorus: I’m already gone, whoa, whoa hey
I’m already gone, whoa, whoa hey
Make it look better, baby, do it up nice
Put it on the table baby, serve it by the slice, hey
I’m already gone

V.3 Shake it baby, make it so your contents never spill
Make it come together, but not ever against your will
Do it baby, work it like a finger to the drill
Hear it baby, smell it like you’re heading to the kill

Pre-Chorus: I’m already gone, whoa, whoa hey
I’m already gone, whoa, whoa hey

Chorus: I’m already gone, whoa, whoa hey
I’m already gone, whoa, whoa hey
Make it look better, baby, do it up nice
Put it on the table baby, serve it by the slice, hey
I’m already gone

Bridge: Shake it baby, make it baby, knees are feeling weak
Back up on the table but you gotta make it squeak
Do it baby, work it baby, gotta hit your peak
Do it baby, do it baby

Chorus: I’m already gone, whoa, whoa hey
I’m already gone, whoa, whoa hey
Make it look better, baby, do it up nice
Put it on the table baby, serve it by the slice, hey
I’m already gone

Bring It Down

Written By: Tyler Tasson

Bring It Down

V1: With his back light shining on
Letting her know how he’s missing
His fingers in her hair, the way she always stares
Into his big, ocean eyes, oh, He knows his darling never lies
Walks in through the door, she wants it to be more

Pre-Chorus: Than the cold, nights, heating up, Secret kisses creeping up
Feelings burning, breathing strong, This just isn’t wrong
x2

Chorus: Bring it back down, Bring it back down
Bring it back to the fingers laced,
The tongues tied, we can make it right

V2: She’s got the face of someone knowing that, what she wants, she’s gonna get it
He’s got the hands of someone knowing that she won’t forget it
In his bed, its been said he loses inhibitions
In her head she knows she’s just his new ambition with,

Pre-Chorus: Than the cold, nights, heating up, Secret kisses creeping up
Feelings burning, breathing strong, this just isn’t wrong
x2

Chorus: Bring it back down, Bring it back down
Bring it back to the fingers laced,
The tongues tied, we can make it right

Bridge: She’s got her heart, stuck between his eyes
Knows his darling never lies
Feelings burning, breathing strong
This just isn’t wrong
With the cold, nights heating up
Secret kisses creeping up
Feelings burning breathing strong
This just isn’t wrong

Chorus: Bring it back down, Bring it back down
Bring it back to the fingers laced,
The tongues tied, we can make it right

Outro: Broken lines scattered between us, secret kisses in the sheets and
Feelings burn, then they’re gone
This just isn’t wrong
