KOTA SHARES HIS VULERNALBILITY IN NEW SINGLE + VIDEO FOR ‘WASTED’

by the partae
Perth Burmese rapper, DJ and audio engineer KOTA shares his new release ‘WASTED’, with heavy hip-hop roots and strong spitfire energy, premiered via Milky yesterday. Releasing alongside a video clip, ‘WASTED’ is a free-flowing and introspective track that explores the themes of new beginnings. “This new track was influenced by a short break I had with my music where I wasn’t being focused and going out too much, but I stopped all that and I'm now ready to work - which is talked about in the hook,” says KOTA. The video clip which also releases today offers an imaginative and aesthetic narrative to accompany the track. The video features KOTA slowly submerging in water encased in a perspex coffin, symbolising re-emerging as an artist after feeling misdirected or trapped. In relation to the creation of the film clip, KOTA explains: "The production team and myself really went all in for this video and it's my proudest work to date. Being able to watch your track come to life is an amazing feeling and I can't wait to share this with everyone." Prior to ‘WASTED’, KOTA has been releasing tracks since 2018, finding and establishing his own signature sound, leaving an impression on some of Perth’s biggest events such as Get Bodied Festival (The Game Sports Bar), Liquid Kandy 1+2 (Metro City), Apocalypse Tour Perth (Jack Rabbit Slims), Riddim (Gilkison's) and more. KOTA has also supported some of the leading names in Australian hip-hop such as ChillinIt, Drapht and Wombat, and worked alongside rising artist, Nerve for his track 'Like That'.   If this release is anything to judge the rest of 2021, KOTA will be an anticipated artist to watch.
