Artist discography


Cute Is What We Aim For´s debut album "The same old blood rush with a new touch" (2006) spent countless months on Billboard Top 200 charts and sold over 210,000 records.
The album track "There´s a class for this" was featured on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Soundtrack last year, it´s a mystery that they never released the super catchy "Teasing please" as a single from the first album, 3 singles were released but not that song.
The band sound a bit more mature on the new album, they switched from the cute style to more muscles in the production, the opening track which is the new single "Practice makes perfect" features a guest performance from Bert McCracken of The Used.

A good song but the album gets really good from track 2, the energetic "Doctor" sounds like a hit in my ears, the song contains really strong hooks and a marvelous ending riff.
The following "Navigate me" is a great example of a perfect mix between emo and pop, this could be a song by Falling Up but the song of the album is "Do what you do" where I get jumping crazy of hearing the Manfred Mann/The Who sounding keyboards.
"Rotation" is so much better than the successful debut!
