Whilst we're sat over here in England, dealing with all this miserable weather, it can be a tad difficult to remember what the sun is and feels like. And, one of our fav things that goes along with the sun, is those sick summer jams that are equally uplifting as they are chill. You get what we mean? No, ah, whatever.
Kita Alexander is an artist that makes tons of those kinda tunes. Including her latest single Like You Want To which is a huge chill-pop banger. As you're probs wondering what the heck we're talking about, check the video for it below, and keep on reading to find out a little bit more about the Aussie pop-starlet!..
Hey Kita, thanks for taking the time to talk to us here at Popshade! Why don’t you start by telling us a bit about who you are and what you do?
Hullo I am Nikkita Kaela alexander, but I go by kita alexander. I'm a lanky 6'1 singer songwriter.
Like You Want To is a HUGE pop jam! We’re a tad obsessed at Popshade HQ! How did that song come about?
Oh THANKYOU. I'm stoked you guys are obsessed. The song came about by jamming with one of my (now) favourite producers for the first time ever, opening up my diary to a random page and sticking words together like a collage.
You’ve got some pretty sick accolades already, a feature on the Kitsune compilation, tons of YT views, and you’ve worked with pro skateboarder Zach Miller too. So, what’s your next goal?Hmmmm my next goal... I think it's just to write better music every day.... And play coachella.
You’ve been recording a lot between Australia and LA, what’s next musically for you? An EP, an album?
Who knows, I'm just going to go with the flow of my first EP and see what everyone wants from me after that.
We’re a pop site, so we have to ask - who is your favourite poster of all time?
Poster? I'm presuming you guys mean pop star? Haha... Jeee that's a tricky one.. I actually think I don't have a favourite pop star...
And what’s one pop song you are OBSESSED with right now?
Jealous by Nick Jonas.
Anyone on the Australia music scene we should keep an eye on?
Me, me, me.
What can peeps expect from a Kita live show?
Just a whole lot of fun and some bad dad dancing
And finally, where can peeps find you?
Come to my shows in December in Aus! I'm supporting jarryd James and meg Mac which I'm super excited for.
We'd like to thank Kita for taking the time to answer these questions!
So, whadaya think? Have you got that ridiculously catchy guitar riff stuck in your head like us? Believe us, it doesn't go away (eight days and counting now!), but that's actually a good thing init.
Also, super awesome news, Kita has just announced her debut UK show in London and we're buzzzzziiing! She's gonna be playing Notting Hill Arts Club on 3rd Feb 2016. Cop your tickets HERE, and we'll see you down the front for some of that bad dad dancing, woop!
