MUSIC: This is the Kit | Thursday 11 January


this is the kit

This Is The Kit will play the Marine Theatre as the first date of an international tour, with support from Tobias Ben Jacob.

The playful indie folk band, led by Paris-based songwriter Kate Stables, has earned the adoration of peers including Guy Garvey, The National and Sharon van Etten. In the last year This is the Kit have performed live in session on BBC 6music and at festivals including Glastonbury.

Their new album is on Rough Trade records, home to The Strokes and Jarvis Cocker; ‘Moonshine Freeze’ is undoubtedly their best to date, and is produced by John Parish (PJ Harvey, M Ward).

Sonically, Moonshine Freeze is a beguiling mixture of great musical sophistication and something more guileless — children’s games, incantations and snatches of nursery rhymes.

“All of it is good” – ★★★ Mojo Magazine.

Support comes from Exeter’s Tobias Ben Jacob, playing his own blend of alt-folk ~ his first show of the year. The 21st Century troubadour spinning tales of love, loss, beauty,  and a unique form of soul cartography.

‘Definitely one to watch out for’ – BBC Radio 3, Late Junction.
