Since I received Kimbra‘s debut album (Vows) this week I have been playing it non-stop and have added her to the list of stuff I am currently obsessing over!
I recently read a review that described her style as “pinballs between disco, funk and Motown – think Burt Bacharach in da club.” I think she’s our* version of Bjork meets Florence & the Machine with the smoky soul of a Motown diva.
Check out this tongue in cheek interpretation of a crazy controlling 50’s housewife!
Can you believe she’s only 21!
*When asked by MyVisionTV journo Thomas Philip what she thinks about Aussies claiming her as their own, she laughed and said “Well it doesn’t really bother me to be honest, if you guys want you can claim me as you’re own. New Zealand will always be my home but Australia is where I want to be right now.“
All that talent AND no trace of the Kiwi accent 😉
