“She’s the party queen we don’t deserve, but most certainly need.” – The Music
And that, my friends, is the best introduction we could ever hope to give you for Kira Puru. This Melbourne based legend has gifted us a video for her track ‘Fly’, the latest single from her self-titled EP.
The clip is directed by Josh Harris (Gang of Youths, E^ST, Middle Kids, Odette), and is a steamy 90’s throwback affair captured in black and white. And yeah, it’s filmed inside a Boeing-747, so there’s that. Love me a plane party.
“‘Fly’ is arguably the biggest and sexiest tune on the KP EP and though I don’t ever need encouragement, I felt this justified the type of flamboyant, high-key behaviour that is: throwing a big ol’ lit party on a Boeing 747,” said Puru.

She’s also shared an impressive line up of special guests to accompany her on the road this November and December. Sydney singer, producer and multi instrumentalist Sparrows will be the main support in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, with Your Girl Pho taking the reins with her fizzing, elasticated blend of neo-soul, electro-pop and RnB elements in Perth. DVNA will open in Brisbane, XIRA in Sydney, Sannia for the first Melbourne show, Ro the second Melbourne show and Brontë in Perth.
Renowned for delivering dynamic and spirited live performances, in the past year Puru has performed two headline sold-out shows, sets at Listen Out, Curve Ball and Groovin The Moo; and was invited to perform as special guest for The Rubens and Vera Blue. 2019 will welcome performances at Mountain Sounds and A Festival Called Panama.
So take your seats, check your nearest emergency exits, and strap yourself in for a healthy dose of Kira Puru’s latest banger, ‘Fly’, premiering on UNCO[V]ERED this Saturday at 12noon.
