David Kitt shares new track "Cling Film" from upcoming album album 'Yous'

By Alex Brown - 8.2.18

David Kitt has released a new single "Cling Film" from his new album Yous out 9th March on Dublin's own All City Records. Kitt has shared some insight into the new track "It kind of equates the feeling of falling under someone's spell to being slowly wrapped in layers of Cling Film to the point where you can't make anything out at all. It's also a play on words as it's written like a short film with the action all twisting and turning its way around Dublin city."

All of these experiences have been brought to bear on his first solo album for years Yous, which mingles a sense of freedom, and calm reflection, with an independent impulse . "This is the most free I’ve felt making a record since my debut Small Moments” says Kitt. "There was no pressure whatsoever. I was happy to wait as long as it took to have the right 10 songs.”

The resultant album is a finely wrought and elemental piece of work, folding in electronic hisses and beats that ground carefully finger-picked guitars and stirring violin, weaving between glorious pop-kissed melodies and stark, immersive, poignant compositions – something Kitt does so well.

In the spirit of J.J. Cale, Love is Overtaking Me-era Arthur Russell, and Ronnie Lane, the relaxed nature of the album was intentional, “I'm getting my electronics fix from New Jackson, so I wanted to leave room for all the live instrumentation on this, and keep the backing as simple as possible, to let every element have room to breathe, and be heard, and have a strong personality.”
