a slice of angst-offloading gutter rock that's a kissing cousin of
Hole, but The Kut's scuzz-covered family tree also stretches further

Dog meets Courtney Love, which is equal parts terrifying and a cause for
long and rowdy celebration. Punk's not dead, pass it on.”
All girl London alt-rock band The Kut’s new single ‘Bad Man’ is the final single release from the band’s latest EP ‘Rock Paper Scissors’.
With gnarly grunge guitars, punk beats and gritty screams, it’s easy to
see why The Kut have been getting so much attention on the live
circuit. The song itself tells the story of a woman who re-lives a
series of flashbacks, causing her to create a cycle of revenge on a long
distant Bad Man. The single releases ahead of the band’s long awaited
debut album, marked for release later this year.
Kut are inspired by the likes of L7, Hole, Deftones, Incubus, Placebo
and Nirvana. Fronted by songstress and multi-instrumentalist Princess
Maha, the 'Rock Paper Scissors' EP is a quick follow up to 2014's 'Make
Up' EP, also produced by James LeRock Loughrey (Skindred, White Zombie,
Def Leppard). Voted into the winning spots in the MTV Brand New
Unsigned Poll for 2014, they've since gained a growing list of industry
supporters including Scuzz TV, Kerrang!, Kerrang! Radio, Metal Hammer, MTV-U USA, AXS USA, Big Cheese,
BBC Introducing, Planet Rock Radio, Jim Gellatly's New Music Showcase
and club supporters including Club NME and Medication. The band’s recent
video, 'I Don't Need Therapy' was premiered on Kerrang!, whilst
forthcoming single 'Bad Man' was added to the top track's feature for Q
Magazine and Classic Rock Magazine.
