The Kut Release New Video
The ‘Make Up’ EP is out Monday 18th August (Criminal Records)
Grunge trio The Kut have released their brand new video for ‘Mario’, a track taken from their forthcoming Make Up EP, slated for release on the 18th August.
Featuring a post-apocalyptic narrative, vocalist Maha explains the concept: “The idea of Mario was about frustration, with the industry and the scene. The concept that as kids we were made a lot of promises, but the reality is that all that’s left for us is a waste land. We are the forgotten generation.” Recalling the filming process, she went on to say “We had a lot of fun making it, jumping fences and scaling floors on the outside of broken buildings to get certain shots”.
The Make Up EP is available to pre-order in a music & video bundle at http://thekut.bandcamp.com
The Kut - Biography
Inspired by bands like Deftones, L7, Hole, Incubus, Placebo, Nirvana, Faith No More and others, The Kut are a London basement rock trio. Having been voted into in the winning spots for MTV UK Brand New Unsigned 2014 Poll, the ‘Make Up’ EP was produced by James LeRock Loughrey (Skindred / White Zombie / My Vitriol / Page & Plant / Def Leppard), featuring 3 brand new tracks plus 2 previous releases ‘DMA’ and ‘Closure’.
The first single from the EP, ‘No Trace’ is a dark and emotive track, already spending 3 weeks in the Scuzz Most Wanted Rock Chart, alongside bands like Paramore, Green Day - as well as playlisted on their 'All-Stars of Rock Show'. ‘No Trace’ was also supported by Alex Baker on Kerrang! Radio and picked up by BBC Introducing in Lancashire and Oxford. This lead to The Kut being invited in for a BBC Introducing live set, where they performed a 4 song set live from the Blackburn studios. The video was play listed on Putpat TV (Germany, Switzerland, Austria) and featured by Vevo, with a number of USA stations also including the track.
Upcoming single ‘Mario’ has recently been played on BBC Introducing Lancashire and the video will be available on 14.7.14 ahead of the release of their forthcoming ‘Make Up’ EP on 18th August.
