Kota Banks

Kota Banks

Australian / Italian artist and songwriter, Kota Banks spent her early teens living in Florence with her family - a formative time that shaped her identity and connection to her heritage. Singing from as early as 9 years of age and now based in Sydney's north, the 23-year old has been hailed as one of Australia's best new pop acts. 
 

Signing with NLV Records in May last year, Banks has been working closely with Swick for her forthcoming PRIZE mixtape, as well as her recent singles "Holiday" and "Zoom". Released in late 2017, “Holiday” boasts infectious melodies and hooks that overlay an avant-garde sonic backdrop: a fusion that evokes the essence of a Summer fantasy. “Holiday” received widespread support from radio across the country, Junkee, Acclaim, Pilerats and more, amassing over a million streams and being lauded as “one of the best pop songs of the year”.

Brimming with confidence and oozing attitude, “Zoom” was released in March 2018. Bank’s sugar-dipped melodies tease over Swick’s crystalline beats and thrusting groove. Like the track itself, the accompanying video shows off Banks' daring side, throwing caution to the wind as she “zoom zoom zoom”s around on dirt bikes like a boss. “Zoom” is set to pass one million streams this week and was added to full rotation on triple j.
 

Since the release of Kota's first single "Empty Streets" featuring MOZA (which has amassed over 18 million streams) and her debut tracks with NLV Records, Banks has toured nationally with Nina Las Vegas on the FOMO Festival tour, secured triple j high rotation, signed with Mushroom Music publishing, debuted her live show, signed with New World Artists, co-penned Australia’s song for 2017 Junior Eurovision, as well as writing for the likes of Jai Waetford, The Voice 2017 winner CXLOE, Supercruel and Singapore’s pop sensation Tabitha Nauser
