“What’s really special about Kira Puru is that she’s created such a unique presence in Australia’s pop landscape.”
– PURPLE SNEAKERS
Currently performing as special guest for Peking Duk on their Biggest Tour Ever, Kira Puru today shares new single Everything Is Better Without You via New Tribe Music. To celebrate the release, the reigning queen of pop will prowl the country for a national tour this June and July.
Uninhibited and uncompromising, Puru returns with yet another anthemic jam with attitude. In this chapter, she’s as fierce as we’ve come to expect her to be, boldly embracing pop in all its glory. “It’s an anthem for anyone who has had to make the decision to distance themselves from a toxic relationship of any kind. It’s essentially about empowerment, healing from a broken heart and emerging stronger, smarter, better, and more badass,” says Puru of the track.
Her biggest headline tour to date, Puru will joined on the road by special guest Kinder in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Canberra. The Kitsuné signed DJ & vocalist duo have also opened for Marshmello and RL Grime and toured as part of Falls Festival, Splendour In The Grass and Alison Wonderland’s ‘Scarehouse Project’.
Puru quickly gathered a cult following with the hypnotic single Tension which has amassed 2.3 million streams. The September 2018 release of her self-titled EP showcased an exhilarating evolution. Second single Molotov landed at #75 on the triple j hottest 100 and has clocked up over 2.5 million streams. The uniquely human star also delivered one of the most rousing triple j Like A Version’s of 2018 with a cover of Katy Perry’s Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F).
Since the release, Puru has been in perpetual motion, stepping into the spine-tingling spotlight with sold-out headline performances and sets at Listen Out, Spilt Milk, Bleach, Gaytimes and Panama.
