This is The Kit are pleased to announce their new single “Coming To Get You Nowhere”. This is the second track taken from her forthcoming fifth album “Off Off On” which will be released by Rough Trade Records on October 23rd ,2020
Kate Stables of This is the Kit explains the meaning behind the video and the song:
“We made from footage of our friend’s car getting stuck when they came to visit us during our rehearsal time just before we went into the studio to make Off Off On. It felt like a car getting stuck and people having to work together and ask for help to get it unstuck was a fitting story to accompany this song, which is itself about getting stuck and the ways we can help or hinder ourselves when it comes to getting out of unhealthy patterns. making this video has been really nice for me during this time of not being able to get together with the rest of the band.
I miss them and the time we spent together making Off Off On so it’s been great to hang out with them in video form.
Not as good as the real thing of course but comforting none the less.”
Kate Stables decided to work on the new record with producer Josh Kaufman, New York-based member of Bonny Light Horseman & Muzz, who has also collaborated with The Hold Steady, The National and most recently Taylor Swift. Stables first met him when working with Anaïs Mitchell on a cover of the Osibisa song Woyaya, their paths later crossing at the PEOPLE residencies in Berlin and Brooklyn.
“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.’” After the band – completed by Rozi Plain (bass/vocals), Neil Smith (guitar), Jesse D Vernon (guitar, keyboards), Jamie Whitby-Coles (drum/vox), – reunited for the cold-water rehearsals in Wales, they headed to Wiltshire’s Real World Studios, just finishing in time for everyone to get home for lockdown.
