The Loose Cut
“West Yorkshire’s alternative to Kings of Leon” – Chris Hawkins, BBC 6Music
The Loose Cut are four lads from Leeds, George (Vocals, Guitars), Ciaran (Bass), Manni (Drums, Vocals) and Craig (guitars) with a joint passion and drive who’ve been making music together for over half their lives, in various configurations.
Emerging from their triumphant sets at Reading & Leeds Festival 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.
Now the band have released ‘Scared’ their new, ‘punchier’ number that brings an 80s Hall & Oates esc groove whilst retaining the riffy goodness that people have come to love about The Loose Cut.
“ …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
