This Is The Kit is Kate Stables band and she makes fantastic, melodic, folk music which often ends in raucous psych-rock riffing.
We have two beautiful songs from Kate’s forthcoming third album due in February 2015. Kate wrote and recorded the album, it’s produced by Aaron Dessner from The National (who HASN’T he worked with lately?) and says of the experience:
‘Aaron was great to work with. Quite a quiet character. Very thoughtful and tactful. He was great at having a vision of what sound the music should have and then somehow finding it. It’s a pleasure and such a privilege to be able to collaborate with people and share the process of making an album.’
In fact they’ve been on tour with The National so you may have already seen This Is The Kit, or perhaps when they supported Sharon Van Etten too. We think 2015 is going to be a great year for the band and it’s a privilege to have a sneak preview.
