With driving beats, buttery vocals and emotionally-charged lyrics, Northern NSW-based singer/songwriterÂ Kita AlexanderÂ today delivers her new pop-anthem with Ocean Blue, the latest taste from her forthcoming EP due for release later this year.Â
With a unique talent for penning tracks around the complicated themes of love, loss and everything in between, theÂ melancholic Ocean Blue strikes a particular chord for listeners. With a driving, double time feel with truncated turnarounds at the end of each verse, the track bursts with colour on a chorus and evokes the sweet sadness of Boys Of Summer and the sting of unrequited love.
â€œBe the moon to my ocean?â€ Alexander asks over echoing chords, effortlessly mixing classic songwriting with electronic overtones. Whilst her sound continues to sonically elevate, Kita is still writing from the same place, one full of emotion and experience. But like the subject matter she so often plays with, these days sheâ€™s taking even bigger leaps of the heart. â€œThis is probably the cheeky, playful side of me that people havenâ€™t seen. Itâ€™s just another example of what I can do and how different songs and sounds fit into my world.â€
Now with overÂ 133 million global streamsÂ under her belt, an impressive catalogue of critically acclaimed pop-anthems including 2 ARIA Gold singles (Damage Done and Like You Want To), ARIA Platinum Between You & I and the 2x ARIA Platinum single Hotel, 2 EPs and not to mention countless adoring fans around the globe, Kita is now gearing up for the release of her forthcoming EP. Set to feature previous heart-on-sleeve singles Run and Storm, the EP is due for release later this year.
