KIMBRA – SETTLE DOWN EP (ElectroPop – New Zealand)
Originally from NZ but now based in Melbourne, Kimbra is not your average female singer, songwriter. Inspired by a range of musical genres and artists, from Nina Simone to Bjork and Prince, she brings a modern edge to the worn sounds of soul, with a voice and artistry that belie her age.
Her debut album Vows was released in Australia last August and shot straight to #5 in the charts. Featuring producers Francois Tetaz (Architecture in Helsinki, Gotye) and M-Phazes (Amerie, Pharoahe Monch), Vows seamlessly combines jazz, soul and funk, puts them through a pop filter, and the result is a stunning first effort for the 21 year old songstress.
Beside her noteworthy chart-topping collaborations with Miami Horror (“I Look To You”) and Gotye (“Somebody That I Used To Know”), Kimbra got a lot of attention last year with the single “Settle Down”, especially after it got remixed by Penguin Prison. Check out this classy electro gem just below!
