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.

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.

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'.
