We are over the moon to welcome The Kittster to The Duncairn – we love this guy’s music!
David Kitt is an Irish musician/producer that crosses multiple genres.
David's father and uncles formed a successful touring folk group when he was young so he grew up surrounded by music, and he himself began performing live sets while studying music technology at Trinity College, Dublin. He recorded and mixed the seven tracks of his debut release in his bedroom and this debut LP, the quietly magnetic Small Moments (Rough Trade) was followed by the expansive ambient textures and looping pop mantras of The Big Romance (Blanco y Negro, 2001); his biggest selling record.
Then came Square One (WEA) in 2003; the soundtrack to falling in love, and The Black & Red Notebook (Rough Trade, 2005) which was, quite simply, a covers album. A snapshot tribute to a record collection, with fascinating gimmick-free Kitt-style workovers of Sonic Youth, Thin Lizzy, JJ Cale et al. 2006’s return to original material, Not Fade Away (Rough Trade) captured an artist dealing with the post-relationship whirlwind of excess and contemplation.
His album The Nightsaver, his sixth LP, the result of two years of late-night experimentation caught in the reverie of writing and recording in a home studio at the top of a winding staircase somewhere along Dublin’s Grand Canal. In addition, David has recently released an string of electronic 12"s as New Jackson on labels including Hivern, Permanent Vacation and Major Problems.
Describing Yous, his first solo record for nine years as “the most free I’ve felt making a record since my debut Small Moments”, David Kitt’s sense of freedom is bound up in themes of renewal, movement, and a constant reshaping of his musical preoccupations. Yous releases the 9th of March and is available for Pre-Order now! (https://tinyurl.com/y8kbq8ff)
