Our feature album this week is actually not Drake’s new record… Better yet, it is from Aussie pop-queen Kota Banks with her new mixtape ‘PRIZE’
Yes you heard that right, despite the fact that Drake has just dropped a new 25-track 2-disc record this week, you may not have known that Miss Kota Banks has dropped one too! Signing with NLV Records last year (run by Nina Las Vegas herself), Kota has spent the past year working hard on her first mixtape. Assisted by rising electro-producer Swick, Kota lets her Aussie/Italiano pop-talent shine on the record.
Taking influences from Euro-pop geniuses from the likes Charlie XCX, Tove Lo, Icona Pop, Tove Lo and more, the album proves that Australian pop music is more alive and fun than ever. Each song is just so vibey; you could even say they are like a nice little birthday ‘prize’???
So yeah, you could spend an hour and a half listening to Drake’s new record, or you could unwrap this sweet 30min treat, and I assure you will have a great time.
Featured Tracks: Prize, Child, Toy, Insomnia and Dangerous.
