They’ve supported The Selecter, opened for Feeder, received praise from the legendary Kathleen Hanna and been the loveliest of guests on our very own Get In Her Ears show. Most importantly, though, The Tuts are simply an incredible band who deserve plenty of acclaim in their own right; they have plenty to say and say it in the most wonderful way.
With their debut album Update Your Brain out last year, the vivacious punk-pop trio create impassioned offerings about Feminism, sexism and ‘everyday life-isms’ with their “sharp tongues and splendid harmonies” (as the legendary Pauline Black puts it).
The Tuts’ greatness lies partly in their ability to coat their angst-driven, powerful messages in joy-filled, ska-infused tunes. Exclaiming “give us something worth voting for…”, their creations couldn’t really be more fitting right now. And they’re not just fitting, they’re necessary. It’s necessary to have these strong women to inspire us, motivate us and – just as importantly – to dance to!
