The Loose Cut
“West Yorkshire’s alternative to Kings of Leon” – Chris Hawkins, BBC 6Music
Emerging from their triumphant sets at Reading & Leeds Festival in 2019 on the BBC Introducing Stage, Leeds based 4-piece alt-rock band The Loose Cut’s single ‘Demons’ created such social media activity that it found itself included on Spotify’s “Hot New Bands” playlist.
The prestigious festival slots were followed up by a UK tour including a sold-out home town show at Oporto in Leeds. 2020 was theirs for the taking, and then the World stopped still!
During the 2020 lockdown period, the band decided to release end of set crowd favourite ‘Haunt’ as the next single, and despite not being able to get out on the road to promote it, the song received airplay and high praise from BBC 6 Music’s Chris Hawkins, calling the track “a real anthem”, as well as being picked up on by Planet Rock presenter Wyatt Wendels who also played the tune on his show.
Latest release ‘Resist’ is the band’s most ambitious piece yet in terms of the scale of the project, seeing the band performing alongside a string duo, a grand piano and pedal steel player.
“ …these guys dish out a gritty blues-fuelled indie-rock vibe that’s not a million miles away from the cooler side of Kings Of Leon.” – Phil Weller, Bang the Drum Magazine
