The Cut Losses//
Appropriately titled, The Cut Losses is the result of indie-rocker Patrick McWilliams' string of failed punk bands, over 10,000$ of gambling debt and being faced with un-employment. While paying homage to the 70's, 80's and even Motown, their sound has been described as "retro-sounding to be sure, but the era that’s being evoked is hard to pin down". The Cut Losses wasn't fully conceived until 2016, by recording what would become the critically-acclaimed debut demo tape "Lightning Dolphin".
The past year has seen The Cut Losses at their busiest; performing alongside main-tier artists internationally and at festivals including James McCartney, Surfer Blood, Said the Whale, Joey Cape and BIG Winter Classic 2017 all while selling-out their own headline shows. On top of this, McWilliams formed the group Gone Sugar Die alongside Mike Hindert (The Bravery). With all things considered, it isn't hard to see why The Cut losses have earned the title of "Vancouver's buzziest young psyche pop act".
Exert From Victoria's Story/Bio: I’ve officially graduated from UBC with a degree in Behavioural Neuroscience, but please don’t ask me to do brain surgery. I still have demons, but they all have cages now and I hold the keys. But most importantly, I’m writing. I’ve written myself my own little corner of the internet that I’m sharing with you. A place where I want people to feel safe to be complete weirdos, because that’s exactly what I am. And I’m going to tell you all about my music, my mental health, and about what I’ve learned in these short 21 years. Plus, we’re going to talk about boys, school, and family, because why not?
I want you to read this website and scroll through it and laugh and smile and maybe even learn something. I’ve created a place where I can share my story and my life. Hopefully someone can take these words I’ve strung together and feel strong and happy.
So please enjoy while I embarrass myself, horrify my parents, and make my friends laugh. Because that’s what I am meant to do.
From me, with love, to you,
