Midnight Furie Interviews: The Kut
Midnight Furie 11th November 2019
Recently London based The Kut played “The Moon” in Cardiff, and caught a few words with The Midnight Hour host Midnight Furie.
Catching up with lead woman Princess Maha, they talked all things Valley of Thorns along with the most recent single and video release X-Ray Eyes, as well as what they have coming up.
Infused with the fuzz of 90’s grunge and alt.rock, The Kut is the alter-ego of multi-instrumentalist and PhD Graduate, Princess Maha. Live, they’re a trio. Think Deftones, L7, Nirvana, Hole, Lunachicks, Incubus and Placebo. On record, they roar. Finalist of the UK Songwriting Contest 2017 and 2018, and Semi-Finalist of the International Songwriting Competition,
The Kut scored a deal with Cargo Records for her own Criminal Records label in 2018, leading to the release of the debut album ‘Valley of Thorns’. Produced by James LeRock Loughrey (Skindred / Def Leppard /White Zombie / My Vitriol), its launch was fan-funded via PledgeMusic, hitting 300% of target. The album spent two weeks in the UK Rock Albums Chart, reaching No.7 and charting in 6 other UK album charts. Currently active on the UK and European rock scene, festival performances have included Download, Camden Rocks Festival, Rebellion Festival, Croydon Rocks, Wilkestock, Amplified, Nice N Sleazy and Strummercamp among others, while tours have spanned the UK, Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.
Valley of Thorns was the bands debut album released in 2018, and was 10 years in the making, and is available to buy.
