‘Foolish Ones’ was an infectious introduction, earning Nakita upwards of 2 million streams across digital platforms. Tastemakers HillyDilly called her “one of the best new artists from the region” and Radio New Zealand dubbed her a “Lorde in waiting”.
2017’s follow-up ‘Vision’ promises to showcase an evolved version of Nakita; an 18-year-old channeling the growing pains of leaving home, moving to the big city and maturing as an artist. The cadre of talent is still there; Clampitt returns to the producing helm, and songwriters Matthew Young
, Dave Baxter, Benny Tipene and Ezra Vine
chip in on collaborating duties. From the tropical pop hooks of lead single ‘In the Water
’ to the world-worn intimacy of ‘Fight the Feeling’, ‘Vision’ is the perfect sophomore step for an artist destined for a long and promising run.
