Kit Walker squash the timeless grooves of Quincy Jones, sweet harmonies of Don Henley and the outrageous vibes of Peter Gabriel into super tight, dance/rock anthems.
They’re fresh, unwrapped, not even out the packet. All your favourite parts of the 80s with the tacky s**t that your dad used to wear left behind.
Having toured the world respectively in previous bands, Kit Walker wrote their new record in the sunset haven of Sandbanks before retreating to the stunning Chale Abbey Studios.
Deploying the Hammer-of-Thor style production of Romesh Dodangoda we are now left with power-fist melodies, intelligent lyrics and a beat that would leave a Cannibal Corpse fan shamelessly dancing like the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
This is Kit Walker.

New single Mr Wright
To celebrate the release of Kit Walker’s second single Mr Wright, they’ve launched their very own retro computer game “Kit Walker Save the World”
You must battle “Slime On Cowell” and his putrid posse: Mylie Virus, Ronald Dump, Justin Creeper, Jeremy Vile and Kanye West in order to rid the world of the bad taste virus! (ha ha – Ronald Dump!!)
Save the members of Kit Walker by fighting off Slime-On with his greatest weakness…. DJ Ent Metal!
A new level will be released with every following single.
Kit Walker – Mr Wright
And the band say: “Mr Wright was one of the first tracks we wrote. In order to find Kit Walker’s sound we all took a week out and stayed in the most incredible house in Sandbanks (next door to Harry Redknapp). Think MTV cribs and picture incredible sunsets, seagulls, yatchs, a mountain of LPs and a plethora of whiskey.
To get the ball rolling we individually brought with us a stack of our favourite albums. Before putting pen to paper we broke out the record player, sunk a gallon of beers, smoked cigars and talked about our favourite artists. We were essentially wiping the slate clean as we’d been playing in bands for years. This was a real screening process to find what music we all equally loved and it became clear that our passion for the 80s was undeniable. We picked our favourite artists (e.g., Peter Gabriel, Michael Jackson, Phil Collins) and got to work.
Mr Wright is a song written to “the next guy”. When you’ve left someone you love, this is the advice you pass onto the next person in order for them to know her little idiosyncrasies and how lucky they are to have her. Mr Wright is essentially a play on Mr Right”.
