To mark the success of ‘crushing’ new single, ‘Talk With Me,’ Kira Puru and Built to Spill announce the launch of tantalising new drop, ‘Cork With Me,’ in a fruity new collaboration.
‘Cork With Me’ is an Orange natural wine, lovingly crafted in the Adelaide Hills by emerging low-fi producer, VHS. Clean, robust and flirtatious, it comes solo or in a playful merch bundle featuring CBD Lubricant by Weedzy, and bespoke candle from Sydney-based Sommelier, Samantha Payne.
‘'Talk With Me' enjoyed enviable status as Most Played Song on triple j for consecutive days this year, saw healthy playlisting locally and internationally, while Puru’s self-produced visualiser hit ABC's iconic 'Rage'. Described by AU Review as "a steamy and sultry odyssey," it’s easy to envision the single’s flawless transition from pop hit to savoured sip.
Written with Andrew Burford (Hilltop Hoods/Sia), produced by Adam Hyde (Peking Duk/Keli Holiday) mixed and mastered by Dave Hammer (Lime Cordiale/flowerkid), Talk With Me is the first outing for Kira since inking a deal with Believe for her highly anticipated next release.
Of the new venture, Kira says, “I always seem to end up beside the wildest and most willing people in the room, so it was no surprise that Tai and I found each other. I’m a big fan of anyone that puts their heart into their work like he does, and it’s such an honour to finally make something together. And… it’s fucking delicious”
After a break from live appearances at festivals and playing with artists such as Peking Duk, Thelma Plum and Yungblud, Kira launched tastemaker venue TIVA, performed at the Melbourne’s beloved Midsumma Extravaganza and is performing at Brunswick Music Festival alongside Camp Cope, Barkaa and more on March 5th.
