This Is The Kit | Off Off On - Red Vinyl




Indies-only limited edition red vinyl

Since 2008’s debut album ‘Krülle Bol’, This Is The
Kit (lead by Kate Stables) have unpicked emotional
knots and woven remarkable stories but even by
their high standards, ‘Off Off On’ is a beautifully
clear distillation of Stables’ songwriting gifts.

By the end of 2018, the band had finished touring
their last album, the talismanic ‘Moonshine Freeze’
- leading to Kate’s Ivor Novello nomination but
when it came to Stables’ natural impulse to start
the next record, her efforts were diverted by an
invitation to join The National on the road for
multiple tours and TV appearances - a continuation
of the role she took on their album ‘I Am Easy To
Find’. “It was so brilliant when I was writing to be
away from my songs and the responsibility of
being in charge of a band or a project - I think it
really helped my writing and my getting through
whatever I needed to get through.”

Richly illuminating and acutely sensitive to the
pulses and currents of life, ‘Off Off On’ shows This
Is The Kit overflowing with ideas. In difficult times,
it’s a record that feels like a lifeline, moving against
the tide, standing against the storm.
