MUSIC VIDEO: Nakita - Where Are You?

New Zealand has been exporting some of pop music's most promising tracks in the last few years. Lorde aside, a raft of Kiwi songwriters has been behind some of this year's biggest hits, and the circle is growing - case-in-point: 17-year old Nakita.

The protégé of Leroy Clampitt, the hit making wunderkind behind Justin Bieber's latest hit Company, Nakita's first single "Where Are You?" places the young artist's mature vocals atop Clampitt's hook-heavy indie-pop production.

The video for "Where Are You?", presents a slick visual introduction to the artist with a maturity that betrays her youth. Shot in the bars, arcades and twilight haunts of Central Auckland City, you could be mistaken for assuming you were experiencing a slice of the Tokyo night life.

AIRPORTS announce thier first EP

Our Australian buddies AIRPORTS are releasing their very first EP "Human Things" NEXT FRIDAY! (August 5th) Yaauus

There are five songs on this EP and I can tell you my jaw's hit the ground on more than one occasion while listening to this new stuff. Think along the lines of NF, and Twenty One Pilots. The reason I like Airports is because it's always real and relateable. After listening to a few of these songs I've come away both pumped and challenged. There is a real happy yet vulnerable tone to their new EP and I can't wait for you to hear it. Let the counting down to next Friday begin. (If you just so happen to be in Brisbane AUS this Saturday they are having an EP launch where they'll have exclusive advance copies of the EP)

The good news is you can PRE ORDER the EP on iTunes and you'll have it as soon as it's released! Just click here... (You're welcome)

They'll also be back for Festival One next year so you can catch all this new music LIVE, there - oh it just keeps getting better!
