For those charged with keeping track of 2020’s iconic musical duos, it’s hard not to place Sydney based songwriting-producing-performing powerhouses Ninajirachi and Kota Banks at the top of the list. Featuring the standout chaos-pop anthem “Middle Of The Night”, and culminating in back-to-back (covid safe) shows, the critically heralded seven-track True North EP counted the likes of Billboard, Junkee and triple j amongst its loudest supporters. Thankfully, that’s not where our heroines’ stories end.
Back again for the first time and hopefully not the last, Nina and Kota reunite for “Secretive!” – a hyperactive, 90’s tinged banger that simultaneously creates and redefines a new genre – rave pop. Combining Nina‘s frantic chords and glitched out percussion with Kota’s seemingly endless ability for radio-ready melodies, “Secretive!” serves double duties as both summary and starting point to their collaborative energy.
