David Kitt – Square 1

Third album from much-heralded Dublin singer-songwriter

Trending Now

Kitt knows a thing or two about the up and the down, the joy and the pain, the minor chords and the major heartaches. Low-slung beats and bursts of brass and strings wrap themselves around sparse, electro-acoustic melodies.

Experimental and enchanting, equally.
