This Is The Kit

Music / Folk, Indie / United Kingdom

We can count it a stroke of luck that with the release of her third album “Bashed Out” (2015), Kate Stables hit the British press like an asteroid after a pretty lengthy orbit. As the founder of This Is The Kit, she and her band had been releasing music since at least 2006 and were already well known to insiders in the UK alternative rock and folk scene. But thanks to her multi-faceted songwriting, inventive instrumentation and a keen sense of melodies that linger in your head for weeks, she went on to impress virtually the entire line-up of presenters at the hugely popular BBC Radio 6 Music station - from Guy Garvey (Elbow) to Lauren Laverne (Kenickie) to Mary Anne Hobbs. With the release of “Off Off On” (2020), some still suspected that This Is The Kit had reached their creative pinnacle for the time being. How could they top such a gem? We will all be proven wrong this year when “Careful Of Your Keepers” demonstrates that Kate Stables is a long way off running out of ideas.
