Edinburgh four-piece Cuttings release their debut EP, entitled ‘(a)’.

The three tunes – ‘Quirkafleeg’, ‘What A Day, What A Day’ and ‘Otto, Squealing’ – were recorded at Stereo, Glasgow by Stevie Cossar last July.

The band – Scott, Tom, James and John – was recently formed, by former members of Paravion, Mad Nurse, Okker, Gigantic Leaves and Royal Edinburgh Music.

The quartet’s next – first? – show is at Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh on 26 November alongside Three Days From Retirement and Our Smallest Adventures.
