Australian pop singer-songwriter and musician Kota Banks shares new pop hit single ‘Mutual XO’ via NLV Records & new tour dates announced
As a melody-heavy exploration into the alternative sides of Kota’s influences, ‘Mutual XO’ delves into unrequited crushing and the frustrations that follow. Fusing raw, hypnotic synths and bouncy pop production, the track ties together with another example of Kota’s ability to lead listeners into a futuristic and melancholic hyperspace.
Kota shares, “I made Mutual XO with my musical partner in crime of 4 years, Swick! We were in the studio messing around with some ideas, and I told him I really wanted to write a pop-dance track à la Britney… something cute and flirty and fun. It’s a song about unrequited crushing and the frustration that comes along with that as a confident woman who knows her worth and can’t understand why a person wouldn’t see that too! I think the cover art for this song might be my favourite I’ve ever made. Word to my amazing visual collaborators Billy Zammit and Adam Dal Pozzo.”
Kota Banks masterfully dissects groundbreaking experimentation with the spectrum of exhilarating pop music. Having garnered over 40 million streams on Spotify from her debut PRIZE mixtape and single ‘Empty Streets’.
Empowerment and experimentation are the pillars of Kota’s work, set to propel the artist into the pop stratosphere nationwide and beyond.
