This is the Kit

This is the Kit

The recording name of Kate Stables, This Is The Kit offer a musical unwinding unlike many others. With folk influences drawn from her time in Bristol, and a playful delicacy pulled from her Parisian ties, Stables and her merry band present music with such finely sketched details that you’re drawn in to her world long before you realise. After building something of a cult following since her 2008 debut, This Is The Kit had something of a breakthrough with 2015’s Bashed Out LP, which was produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner, who signed the band to his own Brassland label for the release, and also featured guest turns from the likes of Benjamin Lanz (Beirut, Sufjan Stevens), Thomas Bartlett (Doveman, The Gloaming) and Matt Barrick (The Walkmen), all while retaining the beautiful sense of discovery that underpins all of Stables’ work.
