Moonshine Freeze by This is the Kit

You know when an album just goes ‘bang’; hits the middle of the target?

Sounds unique?

Grows and grows and grows?

Well, this is one of them.

This is the Kit. Moonshine Freeze. On Rough Trade.

Led by Kate Sables from Winchester before Bristol and now Paris.

It’s a goldmine of folky Pop and was led off by the title track as the lead single earlier this year and rotated heavily on Radio 6.  But dive into the album and you are rewarded with much pleasure.


The Edinburgh International Festival and Fringe. The final Reckonings.
