Bio

Kira Puru & the Bruise cut their teeth playing sweaty dive bars on the East Coast of Australia in 2010/11. They've now taken to holing up in the recording studio, favouring collaboration over perspiration. Clocking up a colourful list of collaborators including The Preatures, Caitlin Park, Paul Mac, Illy, M-Phazes, Blackfella Films, Mark Opitz and Clairy Browne & the Bangin' Rackettes, Kira & the boys are back with a collaborative, split single with fellow Novacastrians, Post Paint. Sitting somewhere between the clammy grit of the Bruise and the tropical, dreamy folktronica of Post Paint, Crest of the Wave is the first offering from either this year as they gear up to drop their own respective EPs later in 2013.

Woooooah, my favourite sensual Nova Castrians (and aren't there a fair few) Hit me across the head again (sensually) with this number. A slinky little ground dweller of a song. I really have to see you guys play live and with some gin in the mix. Thanks for this one.

Slow. Sex. Fever. Three words that come to mind when I hear this song.

Bluesy and moody, (Bluesdy?) without dipping into genre specifics, the guitars sting as well as moan, the drums pluck as much as pound. Gritty stuff.
