CUTS is the audio-visual project of composer and filmmaker Anthony Tombling Jr. His music has been described as “diving-bell-deep growls to sky-scraping, synthetic peals” by Crack Magazine with The 405 noting “clear influences from the powerful build of Mogwai tracks to the My Bloody Valentine-esque use of distortion and distant vocals”.
On CUTS ‘EP1’ The Quietus wrote “the buzz and hum of fed-back electronics get underscored by the undoubtedly sinister-feeling creep of industrial percussive mechanisms”. 'EXIST 2', recently released via Village Green Recordings, includes the track ‘Bunsen Burner’, in original and Redux form, which can be heard on the Ivor Novello winning original soundtrack to Alex Garland’s sci fi masterpiece Ex Machina, featuring in the film’s memorable climactic final scene. CUTS has performed at ATP, Simple Things, Drill Festival and played with Fuck Buttons, James Holden, Haxan Cloak and Wire. A debut album is set for release later this year on Village Green.
