Ta­lented trio mak­ing The Kut at the Treaty

Hayes FM pre­sen­ter Hughie Dixon re­views the live band scene

Harefield Gazette - - LEISURE -

THIS Fri­day sees the ta­lented fe­male trio The Kut ar­rive at the Crown and Treaty pub, in Ox­ford Road, Uxbridge, for one of the fi­nal gigs in their gru­elling UK tour.

The group ef­fort­lessly hop from punk to pop then ven­ture into the grungier side of death metal with vo­cal har­mon­ics be­ing a most wel­come cherry on the ic­ing on a cake that never has the same bite twice.

Their work is ul­tra tight with clever riffs and drum fills on their EP ti­tled Rock Pa­per Scis­sors but can they do it live? Well, YouTube says yes.

Real girl power’s fi­nally mak­ing its mark on the un­signed and un­der­ground Bri­tish pop scene with bands like The Nova, The Tuts, Bloom Twins and Bones and The Kut (Diane, Maha and Han­nah) can quite com­fort­ably sit up there with the best of them.

Go to www.thekut.co.uk to find out more.

Also on the bill this Fri­day are Furs and Masks (www.sound­cloud. com/furs-and-masks) whose quirky in­die gui­tar songs are quite the an­ti­dote to a tire­some week of nine-to-five drudgery.

Of­ten fuzzy, oc­ca­sion­ally syn­thy but al­ways laced with in­tegrity with an em­pha­sis on the ‘gritty’, they de­liver a vi­brant sound that’s up­lift­ing and has that dance-abil­ity fac­tor like Joy Di­vi­sion meets The Cribs.

Be sure to tune into my in­ter­ac­tive HayesFM ra­dio show ev­ery Tues­day at 9pm to hear live and orig­i­nal per­form­ers, plus there is more lo­cal live mu­sic news.

You can find HayesFM on 91.8fm in Lon­don or glob­ally on www.hayesfm.org.uk.
