We’re traveling all the way back to 2015 to visit This Is The Kit’s quiet simmering stunner Moonshine Freeze.
Banjo, guitar, strings, synths, horns and Kate Stables’ crystal clear vocals all lovingly produced by longtime PJ Harvey collaborator John Parish adding up to skeletal folk-inspired meditations.
This Is The Kit is the musical project of Kate Stables and whoever joins her. You thought you didn’t like the banjo but you were wrong pal.
My father toyed with a banjo for a few years when I was a wee lad and I remember being fascinated by its bright, plucky voice that leapt off that resonator like shards of light. Here, in Kate Stables’ able hands, it sings along like a welcome friend.
