This Is The Kit is the beloved musical project of one Kate Stables, born in Winchester, England and now at home in Paris, France. Fronted by Ivor Novello nominated singer-songwriter Kate Stables, their distinctive sound is filled with richly layered swirling melodies, brass flourishes and clearly distilled, airy-light vocals that softly weave remarkable stories while unpicking knotted feelings.
Following on from the success of 2017’s critically acclaimed album Moonshine Freeze, Off Off On is a record that feels like a lifeline in difficult times, moving against the tide and encouraging listeners to keep going
Since 2008’s debut album Krulle Bol, This Is the Kit have unpicked emotional knots and woven remarkable stories, but even by their high standards, Off Off On is a beautifully clear distillation of Stables’ song-writing gifts. By the end of 2018, This Is the Kit had finished touring their last album, the talismanic Moonshine Freeze, but Stables’ natural impulse to start the next record was diverted when she was invited to join The National on tour – a continuation of the role she took on their album I Am Easy to Find.
