Quote from: Lostflowerboy on July 23, 2008, 13:13:38Another underrated band, still existing, are Human television. Maybe not obviously sounding like the Cure (especially the singer sounds completely different than Robert), but the overall mood and instrumentation is very 1985-87 Cure-ish. I love that band!What do you think?http://www.myspace.com/humantelevision
Quote from: cure89 on September 22, 2008, 13:12:10Take a listen to the brillant Portishead album "Third". I think you can hear some The Cure influence (Pornography area) on some tracks ... especially in the opener "Silence". By the way it's the best Portishead album so far.
Quote from: japanesebaby on September 21, 2008, 17:56:19anyway, to me they sound a bit like some kind of a teenage-oriented/"blink182-ish" version of The National:http://www.myspace.com/thenational(perhaps it's because of brooklyn NY - perhaps it's a common trend there... which to me sounds like... i don't know, a combination of and also the trees and bruce springsteen (in a good way). anyway, to my ears the national has more musical depth/less trendy "poppyness".i think there's some "melancholic mellow quality" in their sound that make them somehow "cure-ish" (although at the same time they hardly sound like each other at all).
Quote from: Janko on October 06, 2008, 23:16:44Post songs that are similar to The Cure songs...+++EKV - 7 Danahttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFPV1r6vhGU&feature=related+++EKV were a band from Serbia. Most popular in the late 80's.Their song 7 Dana (Seven Days) is quite similar to A Night Like This. PS(live version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gL-q220sE10)

Quote from: japanesebaby on October 07, 2008, 07:11:33@janko: a good idea but how about merging this thread with this one?:http://curefans.com/index.php/topic,3253.0.html
Quote from: Janko on October 07, 2008, 17:51:39Well you can merge the threads but it's not the 100% same issue.One refers to the sound, one refers to the riffs, same song structures...
Quote from: japanesebaby on October 07, 2008, 19:36:37by the way, this thread reminds of one really old thread:http://curefans.com/index.php/topic,16.msg30.html
