The Tuts have long been one of the best and brightest new bands in the UK, for what they do and what they represent.
This all-female, all-feminist, DIY “3-Tone” trio (of proud Caribbean, English and Indian/Pakistani origin) are avatars in the ongoing debate over inclusivity in the music scene, as well as a powerful musical unit by any standards.
The Tuts have conclusively confirmed that a band can still survive and thrive on today’s terms with the right combination of graft and tenacity, building a fan base so strong that they hit their album crowd-funding target on Pledge Music within 5 days of the launch.
They met as teenagers and learned the fierce working-class work ethic that has them literally doing-it-themselves, with no manager, plugger or booking agent. The Tuts’ ambition is to write the greatest, catchiest songs they can within the parameters of a stripped-down sound, resulting in a series of pop punk nuggets on their debut album, Update Your Brain.
