The Guardian – Editor’s Pick

“Your snarly singer-guitarist in the latest line up of this doughty girl-grunge trio. Shades of Courtney, Brody and L7, naturally, but with plenty of contemporary haters to aim her barbs at”


“This trio of multi-talented girls with a ‘90s grunge alt-rock sound have been touring all over Europe”

Kerrang! Magazine

“Led by Princess Maha, this is a neat twist on grunge pop”

Q Magazine

“There’s 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 back to the garage rampages of The Stooges.”

Metal Hammer

“The Kut are like the bastard lovechild of Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson with awesome riffs and chaotic live shows”

Classic Rock Magazine

“Marks the precise point in the Venn diagram where L7 meets I Wanna Be Your Dog meets Courtney Love, which is equal parts terrifying and a cause for long and rowdy celebration. Punk’s not dead, pass it on “

Metal Mouth

“If they can fulfill their early promise, then The Kut could end up being a big name in no time at all.” 8/10

Hit The Floor Magazine

“[No Trace] epitomises the girls’ influences from the likes of Nirvana and Incubus, displaying their no messing around approach to modern day grunge and taking us back to the early 90′s, where grunge rock was at it’s best!”

SWNK Magazine

“No Trace, the opening song on The Kut’s Make up EP, has a big chance of being the most played song this summer. Awesome stuff!”

Alt Dialog

“It’s almost as if Soundgarden and Hole were put into a blender with The Kut being the result.”

Ultimate Underground

“They are equal parts L7 and bands like Placebo. They even show influences of Nirvana without being a retread and falling prey to the familiar.”

Seba-Rashii Culture

“When we first heard The Kut, we knew that the London based trio were going to be worth keeping a careful ear on. Our patience has been rewarded with the release of the Make Up E.P!”

Uproar Webzine

“Known for their enthusiasm and uncontrollable energy on stage, The Kut have created quite a crazy fan base who as you would expect are ecstatic over the release of their new EP, Make Up.”

Peek-a-boo Magazine

“The Kut present a sonic collage that evokes everything that made the 1990’s alternative rock scene such a beautifully broken beast”

Tasty Fanzine

“‘Mario’ has guitar hook similar to Trey Spruance era Faith No More and an awesome ending. ‘Closure’ and ‘DMA’ are equally noteworthy and the whole EP is impressively polished. Bravo The Kut.” 7/10

Blast Out Your Stereo

“Grunge trio, The Kut have released a brand new music video for their song, “Mario,” which is off their upcoming EP, Make Up.. Trust me, you’ll be singing along to this number for a while (if you aren’t already).”

Mistree Magazine

“Mario” is 90s alternative rock at it’s very best. It is gritty and heavy, with chugging riffs and thudding percussion.”

Palace of Rock

“There are moments when the all female rock band The Kut sounds like Courtney Love´s Hole… But there are also moments when this London trio bring thoughts to a heavier The Bangles like “Mario”, I guess you can call it grunge pop.”

Backseat Mafia

“The rock girl trio based in London have not long since visited my hometown’s longest running live music venue The Lincoln Imp. I went to see them live and they rocked the room with their melodic tracks, long metal hair shaking and rock stances.”

Bristol Live Magazine

“If Deftones and Hole had a little baby they’d probably sound like The Kut”
