New Music: KIT ‘How Hard’


KIT returns with her second single, “How Hard”, following the success of her last. “Goodbye”, released in June 2015, was spun on triple j Good Nights, 2015 with Richard Kingsmill and Home & Hosed with Dom Alessio. It featured for 2 weeks in the AMRAP charts, reaching number 3 overall, and held the number 1 spot on triple j unearthed for 3 weeks. “How Hard” being released this February via Marshmallow Pavement Records is a R&B-infused, pulsing track, characterised by the undeniable strength of Kate Watt’s vocals. Finding inspiration to create the song through retelling the experiences of those closest to her, Kate found catharsis of her own. “The track originated from a drunken night with a best mate, and her experiences of never-ending heartbreak with an on- again-off-again partner. I wanted so badly to tell her to walk away, but I could see how much she loved this person. I used the words of a poem she shared with me to fuel the song. It was almost finished, when I found myself experiencing something similar with someone close to me. You love someone so much that you can’t seem to break away, even though it’s destroying every part of you. I used the last part of writing to get my own pain out and in front of me. It is now so personal for me as it holds a memory of so many people I love in it.” – KIT ……Kate grew up playing in her Dad’s blues band, busking and touring from a young age. She’s gone on to play festivals like The National Blues Fest, Byron Bay Blues, and The Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis, with her previous band The Blue Ruins. KIT is now eager for a run of shows to support her first two singles as a solo artist. Look for upcoming shows and the release of a music video for “How Hard” produced by Killafish Productions in early 2016.
