Kira Puru – Tension.
Australian music all-rounder Kira Puru has made a big statement today with her massive new single Tension.
Tension is the boldest Puru has ever been from a melodic standpoint, giving us a chorus that lustful and euphoric, ready to heat up dancefloors around the country.
Puru has made a name for herself with her own experimental work plus features on tracks by Paul Kelly and Urthboy, but this feels like the track that’s going to take her to a much broader audience.
It’s one of the most triumphant musical moments of the year locally and we’re hitting repeat all day.
