ARTIST OF THE WEEK: No. 241 Kitt Philippa

Following on from the success of debut single 'Grace', coupled with the winning of the Northern Irish Music Prize - Single of the Year in 2018, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Kitt Philippa now gears up for the release of their new EP 'You' and its latest single 'Human'

The lead single from the 4 track EP, 'Human' speaks of a type of imaginary love and yearning. Bringing together a bold and sparse production with their insatiable vocal performances, this new offering sees the artist deliver a truly triumphant new single, filled with both heart and emotion.

Speaking about the new release, Kitt added, "We wanted something honest and relatively raw to visually mirror the music. Buildings, and (de)construction in general, interest me [lyric line in verse 1: 'I keep building for demolitions'] so it seemed appropriate that the surroundings for the 'Human' video was in a disused 19th century warehouse in Belfast. The walled emptiness and window-like roof simultaneously create a feeling of isolation and yet spacious potential; shadow and light. A Wurlitzer was placed in the centre of the room to accompany and complete the basic performance of the music."

The new EP 'You' will be available from the 17th May via Paragon Records, with 'Human' being available to stream now. They will also be performing at The Great Escape in Brighton later today (10th May), and you can watch the new video for 'Human' in the player below.
