Kira Puru is an Australian musician. She is of Maori descent, her father being from the Tainui tribe, and grew up in Cardiff, New South Wales, near Newcastle. In 2013, Puru moved to Melbourne to launch her career as a solo artist after a string of collaborations with Paul Mac, Illy, Paul Kelly and Urthboy.
Puru has been described as "Señorita, swagger and a troublemaker" by Triple J who's self-titled EP was released in 2018 by New Tribe Music, a joint venture record label with Sony Music Australia. i-D Magazine recently called Puru "a charismatic stage persona" and she has performed at Splendour in the Grass, Spilt Milk, Listen Out, and Groovin' the Moo.
Puru launched with single "Tension" in 2017 then followed on with "Molotov" which The Guardian said is a "Slinky, attitude-laden song" and was ranked 75th on the Triple J Hottest 100, 2018. The video for her new single "Why Don't We Get Along" was launched by Clash which they described as "Perfect Pop" also produced by long term collaborator Jon Hume
