The intro’s a bit meh but tut-tut on you for not listening on because The Tuts’ brand of lo-fi all-girl pop punk is quite difficult to dislike. Along with the similarly sounding and equipped Colour Me Wednesday (bassist Harriet is also in CMW) they are starting what appears to be a C86 revival in Uxbridge.
They strike a delicate balance between approachably fun and unbridled explosiveness. Ok, so it might not be that nuclear but it’s the best we can hope for since the days of Bill Price enticing the anger out of The Clash. This is UK pop punk at its finest; raw and unrefined with a jovial vibe that goads you into thinking that every obstacle is minuscule and irrelevant. If this tune doesn’t cheer you up…can I try again later?
