Introducing: The Tuts
Are The Tuts the female version of the Libertines? I don't really have enough information to say. But I think that this English band has great energy, charisma, engaging songs and, to be sure, a shambling but melodic approach to rock that does, indeed, remind this listener of the Libertines. The line-up is Nadia Javed (guitar and lead vocals), Harriet Doveton (bass and backing vocals) and Beverly Ishmael (drums). They released a four-track recording in July. Below is the video for the lead track and stream of the entire EP.
By the way, the ladies helpfully explain that a "tut" is to express annoyance, impatience, or mild reproof. As in "tut tut".
