Hailed as one of Australia’s best new pop acts, Sydney-based singer/songwriter Kota Banks has unveiled her latest genre-pushing pop slice “Zoom” as premiered via triple j’s Good Nights, and audacious companion video – out now on the esteemed NLV Records.
With production pioneer Swick behind the desks, “Zoom” sees Banks carve out yet another certified pop banger. Brimming with confidence, the track oozes attitude as Bank’s sugar-dipped melodies tease over Swick’s crystalline beats and thrusting groove. Like the track itself, the accompanying video shows off Banks’ daring side, throwing caution to the wind as she “zoom zoom zoom”s around on dirt bikes like a boss.
On “Zoom”, Kota Banks says: “Zoom was inspired by two things: a thrilling late night rendezvous last Winter, and afro-beats music. I loved the idea of throwing a colourful, detailed lyric across a sultry beat, because storytelling has always been so important to me, and dancing is something I love at the moment. With this song I got the best of both worlds. I wanted the song to sound like secrecy and adventure and euphoria and late nights. I hope it triggers memories and the prospect of thrill and adventure for people listening.”
