“Lyrical content aside, Cut Me is just as strong in its production and delivery. A constantly groovy, looping guitar sample back pedals over the thumping bass. KnD’s music is truly a collaborative effort. They write all their songs together, taking turns to bring a tune and spontaneously adding lyrics to the melodies they create”. – AAA Backstage
