This Is the Kit have released a new single from their forthcoming record Careful Of Your Keepers. ‘More Change’, which follows lead cut ‘Inside Outside’, comes paired with an animated video created by Benjamin Jones. Watch and listen below.
Songwriter Kate Stables shared the following statement about ‘More Change’:
More it stays the same.
Sometimes it feels like everything has completely changed and then it just feels like it’s always
been like that. And always will be like that.
The more things change the more they actually stay the same.
The one constant is change.
Change is the only thing we can be sure of.
Who is who.
The people that become important to us and the way they become important. Phases that
come and go? Or don’t go?
The friends we need. We need our friends. We need to remember to be in the world.
I love it when Gruff says “light bulb.”
Realising that things come and go and pass and are born and then die.
The good it does us to hold hands with someone.
The tearing in two of a person and a heart.
Jones added of the accompanying visual: “With this video I wanted to create something that felt homemade, organic and very much alive. Using very simple puppetry with some old coat hangers and some basic stop motion (and some surprisingly willing neighbors who lent me their faces) I’ve tried to create a few characters and scenarios which are connected in some ways, but also reflect the themes I picked up from the music – sadness, compromise, exploring new ground, and finding new ways to help each other move forward.”
Careful Of Your Keepers is due out June 9 via Rough Trade Records.
