This is the fifth album by the band and isthe follow up to 2017 critically acclaimed album �MoonshineFreeze�. The album will be available on LP / CD�/ MP3.Kate Stables decided to work on the new record with producerJosh Kaufman, New York-based musician, Hold Steadycollaborator and member of Bonny Light Horseman and Muzz.Stables first met him when working with Ana�s Mitchell on acover of the Osibisa song Woyaya, their paths later crossingat the PEOPLE residencies in Berlin and Brooklyn.�We were on the same page about a lot of musical ideas, aswell as doing things I wouldn�t do musically. It was a lovelymixture of �you�re exactly in my brain and exactly at theopposite end of my brain.�� After the band � completed by RoziPlain (bass/vocals), Neil Smith (guitar), Jesse D Vernon(guitar, keyboards), Jamie Whitby-Coles (drum/vox), � reunitedfor the cold-water rehearsals in Wales, they headed toWiltshire�s Real World Studios, just finishing in time foreveryone to get home for lockdown.�Kate explains the meaning behind the song �This Is What You Did��It�s a bit of a panic attack song. The negative voices of otherpeople that are you�re own voice. Or are they? Hard to say whenyou�re in this kind of a place. How to get out of this place?Needing to get outside more.� Cosmically topical what with theserecent days of inside all the time. Knowing the things, you shoulddo because they�re good for you and make you feel better but forsome reason you still stay inside and fester in your own self-doubtand regret and self-loathing. Fun times! We all get into negativemind loops sometimes. Especially when you�re not getting the freshair and outside time you need to stay healthy.�Since 2008�s debut album Krulle Bol, This Is the Kit haveunpicked emotional knots and woven remarkable stories, buteven by their high standards, Off Off On is a beautifullyclear distillation of Stables� song-writing gifts. By the endof 2018, This Is the Kit had finished touring their lastalbum, the talismanic Moonshine Freeze, but Stables� naturalimpulse to start the next record was diverted when she wasinvited to join The National on tour � a continuation of therole she took on their album I Am Easy to Find.�I think it did me loads of good,� laughs Stables. �It was sobrilliant when I was writing to be away from my songs and theresponsibility of overseeing a band or a project - just toforget about that for a while and be a minion in someoneelse�s band was brilliant, I loved it. I think it reallyhelped my writing and my getting through whatever I needed toget through.�
