For a lot of you, Kimbra won’t be new. Mostly because of this song (great song), which has now clocked up a massive 53 million YouTube views. If anyone from Australia is reading, she’s pretty much a superstar to you. But to those who haven’t heard of Kimbra yet, it would be a shame to leave you in the dark and so I write this post for you.
Kimbra is one of the most interesting things to happen to pop music for quite a while. She sings a bit like Katy Perry and (thank god) there is nothing ‘mysterious’ or ‘dark’ about her. She writes interesting pop songs, which are all pretty bouncy happy and with lots of interesting beats. She also seems like a very honest down to earth girl which is a very attractive attribute for her to have (especially after all the controversy about a certain Miss Del Rey recently). Originally from New Zealand, Kimbra released her first debut album ‘Vows’ in Australia in August of last year. Since then she has gone from strength to strength and just got 4 songs in the Triple J Top 100, with Somebody That I Used to Know going in at No. 1.
There are no UK dates planned yet but I don’t think it will be long before Kimbra brings her infectious pop music to the rest of the world.
