The Kut

The Kut

 London, England, GBR

Combining sultry vocals, kick ass guitar riffs, rock bass, great bv’s and solid drumming, there's no gimmick. The Kut are a group of accomplished female musicians, who play a mix of dark indie; in parts upbeat and at other times intense, maintaining their original rock sound throughout.


Having recently sold out their 'Love Hate Vampire Shotgun System Circus' UK Tour, The Kut are fast becoming a known act on the UK independent music circuit. Their recent music video 'Closure' was playlisted on the NME TV Radar Playlist, highlighting the best of new music videos from new and established acts. This is in addition to playlisting on Sub TV, featuring in student unions around the UK, as well as Tuune TV, the screens of Scream Pubs and selection for Greatest Hits channel.

Frontwoman, lead guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, Maha has been reviewed as a Slash/Linda Perry hybrid and The Kut's original sound has earned them some growing attention in the UK as well as in the US. This year Maha secured an endorsement deal with Marshall Amplification, making her one of the only females in the UK to have their seal of approval. The bands headline show at The Garage London, sold out within just 7 hours, marking the start of good times for The Kut. Previously the band performed as main support at the 25th Anniversary of London's People Day, a festival that attracts over 30,000 people each year.

Their self-recorded 'The Vision' demo received a great deal of attention, and before The Kut set foot in a studio they gained the support of a massive amount of reviewers and radio stations. However, after spending time in the studio, the band released their debut single 'Doesn't Matter Anyway'. Doesn't Matter Anyway is a choppy indie rock floor filler and was well received all round, picking up support from BBC Radio 1 Introducing, BBC Radio Tees and achieving playlist on over 30 FM stations in the UK and into the hundreds worldwide. The recent UK tour was well received by fans and interviewers alike. The singles provides a snippet of what is to come when The Kut finally unveil the eagerly awaited debut album, 'Lies My Mother Told Me'.

Live Performance Reviews, Hard Rock Café, London

“Ladies, well done.. I thought you were absolutely brilliant, what can I say, my notes here say are that you’ve got really structures in your songs.. I think your image is great, the BVs are great... you absolutely smashed it, so well done!”
Jemma Downey (Account Director, Live Nation)

“I thought that was absolutely brilliant! So many great bands in there, a bit of Black Rebel Motor Cycle Club, Queens of the Stone Age, the B52s, the last song reminded me of the Ramones, the legends. Just no complaints from me, I loved the effortlessness of the performance, to say, yeah, we’re cool. Well done!”
James Walsh (Starsailor)

“I can only concur with James on that that’s absolutely fantastic, it was really really really brilliant... You’re gelling so well, the last two songs were great, really fantastic. And I have to say to your drummer, well done, fantastic performance. I see too many bands with drummers who just sit there and drummers should be the driving force of the rhythm of the band and you certainly are, and your standing up and saying I’m here and I thought it was a great performance. Great image, great performance, and I think we’ve seen something special tonight”
James Curran (Head of Music, Absolute Radio)

Written By: Maha

Fall here, can you tell me what you've been
Can you tell me what you've seen?
Something has taken me over
Lick moral scars clean, living in this dream
Just tell me where you've been
Someone has taken me over

Sworded desire
I'm running with fire in my eyes
They're waiting, in the sunrise
Manic destruction in my mind
They're waiting, they're waiting

In envious peak, can you call on my blame
Will you tell me what's you gain?
Something is taking me over
Such sedative seed
I see through your skin
Just tell me where you've been
Someone has taken me over

Sworded desire,
I'm running with fire in my eyes
They're waiting, in the sunrise.
Manic destruction in my mind.
They're waiting, we're waiting
