KITA

Psychedelic Soul

(Pōneke / Wellington)

"To experience a KITA gig is to witness a stellar example of 3 strong musical identities ... fusing together to create a synergy and oneness unparalleled on the scene today.”

— Adam Page (The Shaolin Afronauts)

Following hot on the heels of their debut self-titled album produced by Grammy Award winning Tommaso Colliva (Muse, Razorlight), this truly modern album reflects the moment we find ourselves in - wistful and hopeful for what’s to come. 

Firmly on the ‘ones-to-watch’ list, KITA’s sound builds a dreamscape of synth-pop, with stunning melodies layered over soulful beats. The three-piece – consisting of vocalist, guitarist, and writer Nikita 雅涵 Tu-Bryant, keyboardist Ed Zuccollo (The Black Seeds, Trinity Roots, Troy Kingi), and drummer Rick Cranson (Little Bushman) – happily play in the space between genre, melding a distinctive style peppered with moments of modern jazz, vintage rock, polished pop, and grounding soul.

The trio are in their element playing live, where their soaring synths rise to new heights, carried loftily by the impressive vocals of front wāhine Nikita. Their ability to connect people and tell stories through music is most poignantly felt at KITA’s live shows.
