How Cutting Crew are "New Wave"?

Postby MissingPersons » Fri Apr 14, 2017 1:56 pm

My guess is, because lead singer's former band (The Drivers) were New Wave. But apart from this, I don't see any New Wave elements in their music. They sounded more like Richard Marx or Toto from the Fahrenheit/The Seventh One era or Bad English.

I agree. But it seems like all pop bands in the 80's get lumped into either new wave, hair metal or rap.

What I find bizarre is, how John Waite isn't labeled as New Wave. Sure his music was more like Soft Rock/AOR...but he had the looks of some New Wave singer. :lol:

I think Cutting Crew is more AOR than New Wave.

I believe and I could be wrong but one of the guys in the Cutting Crew was in a very early Iron Maiden lineup

Exactly. Died In Your Arms, I've Been In Love Before, and Any Color are AOR classics. Broadcast or Sahara on the other hand, would be Soft Rock. Don't see any New Wave influences at all.

Sure not Nick Van Eede or Kevin MacMichael.
