Bio

Since launching early 2020, Xirita’s vocals have earned her praise from Triple J, Acid Stag and Beat Magazine being likened to artists such as Mallrat, Taku and Billie Eilish. The success of her debut single Don’t Go, charted Top 10 in the Triple J Unearthed Charts, receiving national radio play across Australia, Europe and the UK and saw the artist feature in Apple Music’s ‘Daily Chill’ and Spotify’s ‘New Dance Beats.’

Returning with her follow up single, Lost Nerve, presents Xirita as a dominant and commanding presence.

“Something about those vocals just linger on.” – Claire Mooney, Triple J Presenter.

Xirita’s vocals flick effortlessly between ethereal and commanding among witty lyrics and a spiteful delivery. With accents of brooding brass and a vocal comparative to Alina Baraz, this single is set to bring a timely roaring amplification of female empowerment. With production from Cropley, StayGo and Rhys George, Lost Nerve delivers a seductive new sonic atmosphere for the Melbourne artist.

“There is an inherent strength in all of us easily diluted by insecurities and people pleasing tendencies. Lost Nerve reclaims this strength, speaks to empowerment and the importance of establishing healthy boundaries.” – Xirita

In the wake of live shows and a slew of collaborations, the 24-year-old-Australian songwriter and vocalist brings her unique story-telling, melancholic lyrics and beguiling melodies to create driving electronic beats with a buttery-sweet sentiment. With a series of releases coming up in 2020, Xirita proves she is only just getting started.

A little warped, colourful and loungey dose from Xirita & Copley.
