This Is The Kit have announced their fifth record Off Off On, alongside unveiling the lead single "This is What You Did".
Kate Stables of This Is The Kit says of the new outing, "It’s a bit of a panic attack song. The negative voices of other people that are you’re own voice. Or are they? Hard to say when you’re in this kind of a place. How to get out of this place? Needing to get outside more. Cosmically topical what with these recent days of inside all the time. Knowing the things, you should do because they’re good for you and make you feel better but for some reason you still stay inside and fester in your own self-doubt and regret and self-loathing. Fun times! We all get into negative mind loops sometimes. Especially when you’re not getting the fresh air and outside time you need to stay healthy."
This Is The Kit's follow up to 2017's Moonshine Freeze is produced by Josh Kaufman of Muzz and Bonny Light Horseman, and features a band made up of Rozi Plain (bass/vocals), Neil Smith (guitar), Jesse D Vernon (guitar, keyboards) and Jamie Whitby-Coles (drum/vox). They recorded the LP at Wiltshire’s Real World Studios right before the coronavirus lockdown.
Stables says of working with Kaufman, "We were on the same page about a lot of musical ideas, as well as doing things I wouldn’t do musically. It was a lovely mixture of ‘you’re exactly in my brain and exactly at the opposite end of my brain'."
