Following hot on the heels of their recently released album, Wellington-based Kita are delighted to announce a tour around Aotearoa in support of their debut self-titled album, visiting eight centres this June.

Firmly on the ones-to-watch list in a vibrant local music scene, 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, Hollie Smith), 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.
