Nikita is a fun, tongue-in-cheek song written in the summer of 2015 about a dear friend of the band. The song develop around a melody written by guitarist James Garish, and was inspired by the recent marriage of the band’s dear friend Nikita.

The song was developed throughout the process of recording the demo at Platinum Studios, as well as through testing driving it live on stage. After seeing the reactions of people listening to the song band knew that they had found their new single and decided to record it professionally. After some research, they chose to record Nikita at Digital Forest Studios with Andrew and Jeremy Rawbone-Viljoen. The days of recording were fun, relaxed and comfortable, which is reflected in the feel of the song. This process and the experience of recording the single can be seen in the recently released Mockumentary, filmed and edited by Nikita Bandli. Mastered by Rogan Kelsey of Kelsey Mastering, and artwork and graphic design by Nikita Bandli, Nikita is set to release on the 26th of August 2015.
