This is the Kit, the folk-rock project of Kate Stables, has shared a new song called ‘Was Magician’. It’s taken from their upcoming album Off Off On, which is out October 23 via Rough Trade Records. Check it out below, alongside an accompanying live video.
According to a press release, ‘Was Magician’ was partially inspired by the works of the beloved sci-fi/fantasy author Ursula K. Le Guin. “Often it’s children who have underestimated powers,” Stables said in a statement. “They have an understanding and wisdom about things that we think beyond their abilities. People like Greta Thunberg — the young people who we have borrowed the earth from and who we have to give it back to.”
The follow-up to 2017’s Moonshine Freeze, Off Off On was recorded with Josh Kaufman of Bonny Light Horseman and Muzz. It includes the previously release singles ‘This Is What You Did’ and ‘Coming To Get You Nowhere’.
