Track Of The Day: The Kut – ‘AMINO’

The perfect rock’n’roll tonic to motivate you out of bed on a dreary winter’s morning, The Kut gives us a flavour of her upcoming second album with fierce latest single ‘ANIMO’. 

Meaning ‘spirit’ or ‘courage’, the energetic track strikes hard with chugging power chords and a catchy electronic motif. ‘ANIMO’ is tight and compelling throughout, capturing a classic rock sound with a modern edge, as the lyrics speak of the bravery of recent women’s rights protests across the UK. Driven by The Kut’s signature dynamic vocals, the tune also features Alison Wood on soaring guitar riffs, Jennifer Sanin providing pounding bass, and Diana Bartmann solid on drums – a formidable unit demonstrated perfectly by ‘ANIMO’’s rousing accompanying video.

Released as a taster of her anticipated second album, due June 2022, The Kut also has plans stateside, with a great new US distribution deal under her belt. If ‘ANIMO’s infectious energy and hard-hitting rock power are anything to go by, she has exciting things in store for us.

Track Of The Day: The Kut – ‘X Ray Eyes’

Following the release of her debut album Valley Of Thorns last year, which landed in the Top 10 of the UK Rock Albums Chart, Princess Maha – aka The Kut – has now shared a powerful new single.

Propelled by eerie hooks and the soaring impassioned power of Princess Maha’s gravelly vocals, ‘X Ray Eyes’ at first seems a little more mellow than previous riotous offerings such as ‘Bad Man’. However, it soon builds to a frenzied grunge-fuelled anthem, retaining all the grit and raw emotion that we’ve come to know and love from The Kut.

Eerie hooks, soaring impassioned power of gravelly vocals… More reflective that riotous offerings such as bad man… but retains the grit and raw emotion that we’ve come to know and love.

Featuring The Kut fans who meet their demise at the hands of a determined vampire slayer, the new video ‘X Ray Eyes’ is out now:

Track Of The Day: The Kut – ‘Hollywood Rock N Roll’

Following success for their debut album Valley Of Thorns, and having wowed audiences at the likes of Camden Rocks, Rebellion and Amplified festivals, rockers The Kut return with a riotous video for new single ‘Hollywood Rock N Roll’.

Propelled by a thrashing, angst-driven energy, ‘Hollywood Rock N Roll’ relents the state of Hollywood and the world in general. With the raw, gritty vocals of front-woman Princess Maha, alongside racing riffs and pounding beats, it builds to an anthemic blast of raging rock that’ll grab your attention in an instant with its seething power.
