This Is The Kit

Bristol musician with a wonderful voice, Kate Stables, acting like This Is the Kit, will too perform at Pohoda. If you analysed the most commonly used words in the reviews of this ladyʼs work, you would find expressions such as petting, beauty, peace, depth, colour, melodies, voice... In 2015, she appeared in an episode of the BBC documentary series Music Box hosted by Guy Garvey, who argued that her second album deserved a Mercury Prize nomination. She received no less praise for the third album Bashed Out, which was given the rating of 8 out of 10 by Uncut, The Line of Best Fit, and The 405. This trend continues also with the latest LP Moonshine Freeze, which includes the cooperation with the famous English John Parish (best known for his work with PJ Harvey).

Besides Parish, another famous musician, Aaron Dessner of The National, also appears on the LP. The sophisticated arrangements are balanced with playful motifs. Drowned in Sound gave the latest album a rating of 9 out of 10. They especially appreciated that this great storyteller and musician finally found the right sound for her and it was a pleasure to witnesses that. The Clash remarked that this album does deserve quality headphones: take them off while being carried away by the magical music of This Is the Kit at the next Pohoda.
