‘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.
