Eora / Sydney-based powerhouse vocalist Kota Banks returns with her latest cut of new music, titled ‘GIRLS WORLD!’ out via her label home on NLV Records.
Kota Banks has gone from strength to strength in carving out her own space in the pop sphere, having made her foray into the digital world with her NFT project UP!, followed by her most recent releases ‘Dreamhigh’ and ‘Mutual XO’. ‘GIRLS WORLD!’ continues to build on her euphoric soundscape that consistently blurs genres, sweeping listeners up in an exploratory transcendence, undercut by contemporary pop sensibilities. Across ‘GIRLS WORLD!’ Banks trades shimmering melodies and bright synths for confident raps married with bass-heavy electronic production. The result is an intoxicating display of Kota’s forward-thinking blend of hyperpop and alt-RnB.
Speaking to the release, Kota shares ”I wanted GIRLS WORLD! to be the ultimate head-fuck conceptually – I love nothing more than a play on words / a double entendre. I think nature complements our physical attributes so beautifully – there’s this symmetry we have with it: a woman is like a piece of fruit in so many ways. The textures of parts of our bodies, the sweetness, the beauty, the colour. I wanted to put all of these ideas in a pop song, and reflect them sonically too: it’s gritty at times, pretty at others: that’s the reality and complexity of a woman.”
Kota Banks’ ‘GIRLS WORLD!‘ is OUT NOW via NLV Records.
