Chitra’s music is the vessel for an old soul growing up and navigating the world with a firm lens of the present. Growing up in the Bellarine Peninsula, her adolescence as a coastal kid – jubilant and carefree – shines across her vocals and production work. Though the instrumentation and melodies appear as breezy, catchy jaunts, Chitra’s magnetism lies in catching listeners off guard with her astute observations of relationships, the world, and her place amongst it all. Chitra footnote her contemporaries – Julia Jacklin, Angel Olsen, and Adrianne Lenker – and fuse their influences onto a bed of rousing rock, forged with an alt-folk twang. Chitra’s effortlessly cool energy and endearing magnetism emerges from her definiteness to remain wholly herself in her writing and music, making work that is deeply grounded in the honesty of her day to day. She represents a strong and free thinking creative emerging within Australian culture that strives for creative authenticity rather than conventional milestones of the past.
