Grunge trio The Kut have released their brand new video for ‘Mario’, a track taken from their forthcoming Make Up EP, slated for release on the 18th August. Featuring a post-apocalyptic narrative, vocalist Maha explains the concept: “The idea of Mario was about frustration, with the industry and the scene. The concept that as kids we were made a lot of promises, but the reality is that all that’s left for us is a waste land. We are the forgotten generation.” Recalling the filming process, she went on to say “We had a lot of fun making it, jumping fences and scaling floors on the outside of broken buildings to get certain shots.”
Self-styled as ‘basement rock’, The Kut present a sonic collage that evokes everything that made the 1990’s alternative rock scene such a beautifully broken beast. Tying thick slabs of fuzzy guitar, drawn from the core of grunge’s bitter heart, to ethereal passages of twinkling atmospherics that pay homage to the likes of My Vitriol and early Radiohead, the London trio will have you double checking your pocket for Pogs and Patchouli Oil.
