Kate Stables has quietly, patiently built up one of this country's most unique projects.
Pushing This Is The Kit forwards, her graceful, folk-inclined songwriting has reached fresh heights, recently supporting The National on their huge UK tour.
New album 'Moonshine Freeze' is out now, released on legendary West London independent Rough Trade.
Album highlight 'By My Demon Eye' is a wonderful artistic feat, matching her West Country stylings to a neat, universal touch.
She explains: "For me it is an upsetting song. It's not meant to be happy. It's a heart wrenching situation between two people who have no solution for the mess they are in. but then again, I guess stories are often simply what we decide to hear."
This Is The Kit recently shot a full Rough Trade session, recording a live version of 'By My Demon Eye'.
It's a stark, bold performance, the languid horns adding lashings of colour against Kate's intimate vocal.
Tune in now.
