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”

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.”

Clash Magazine

“New single ‘Mind Games’ leads the way, and it finds the three-piece blazing a trail for others to follow. Glamorous rock ‘n’ roll with a punk edge”

Metro

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

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.”
