Kota Banks - Big Pineapple Music Festival 2019
Australian / Italian artist and songwriter, Kota Banks has been hailed as one of Australia's best new pop acts.
Signing with NLV Records in May last year, Banks worked closely with Swick on her PRIZE mixtape, as well as singles "Holiday" and "Zoom". “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”.
Late June 2018, Kota Banks released 10 new tracks on her groundbreaking mixtape PRIZE, again written entirely with producer, Swick. “Child” & “I’m It” already becoming radio favourites, while “Fiorentina” featuring UK Grime MC Capo Lee, secured European radio rotation on Reprezent and plays across Beats1 and BBC Radio 1.
Since the release of Kota's first single "Empty Streets" featuring MOZA (which has amassed over 19 million streams) and her debut tracks with NLV Records, Banks has toured nationally with Nina Las Vegas on the FOMO Festival tour, supported Duckwrth, What So Not, Mallrat & E^st, alongside a publishing deal with Mushroom and signing with New World Artists. 2019 will see Banks continue her business of breaking boundaries and rethinking the Aussie pop genre, with more music soon to be released.
