New release: Sheila And The Kit - Ruffhouse (single)

April 5, 2019

Sheila And The Kit releases new single Ruffhouse

To every Sam, John, Tom, Chuck, Bill, Ray:



This new release is the 6th single of alternative indie-dance band Sheila and the Kit. High energy electro-pop. Handcrafted to go ALL OUT on your favorite Roughhouse Party! Are you ready for the summer? 

We have been playing with the word ROUGHHOUSE for a while now. We figured it could very well be a new music genre. We tried to come up with a sound for it and this is the result. Lyric-

wise this is Sheila's fun way of feminism. Bragging and flowing in this battle of the sexes.

For fans of Power-Chicks, Home-Queens, She-Bots and women in general; this one's 4 U!

Sounds like: Charli XCX, Confidence Man

Ruffhouse is released on Innercore Music.



Irresistible dance music; an electronic, groovy flirt with 80's sounds, while retaining a modern feel.

Edgy and energetic sound
Sheila and The Kit makes alternative synth pop. Catchy vocals combined with motoric synths and drums result in an edgy and energetic sound that’s designed to dance to. Sheila and the Kit started writing music with one important goal. It had to be music where they themselves would want to dance to, all night long. They locked themselves in their studio and soon the first concepts were created. “We’re not writing about misery and failures, but about things that kept us busy during our formative years. Love, awkwardness, clothes, books, hobbies, skating and 7-UP.”

Musical Candy Necklace
In collaboration with band members Chris Doyle and Ralf Pouw, these first concepts grew to become a musical candy necklace, which now, two years later, is ready to be shared with the world. The first material they presented was the singles ‘Good Love Stories’ (with which the band became KX Radio Talent in February), ‘Next 2 U’ and ‘Homeschool Sweethearts’, which together make up for almost 100.000 Spotify streams. Sheila and the Kit was part of Dutch showcase festival Popronde last fall, and rocked the stage on Saturday night at internationally acclaimed Eurosonic-Noorderslag 2019.
