Re: Kimbra.

Her songs are very indie-like. It's OK, but the problem is IMO, she doesn't bring much to the table. She's a good singer, but her material has sadly underwhelmed for me.

Her songs aren't punchy but I hope she does get some mainstream success. Unique voice, deep and strong and she can sing great live. I was very impressed by the songs on her album.

Re: Kimbra.

I know it will be hard to take this in any other way than an insult to Kimbra, but her voice always reminds me of:



It's mostly the vibrato and the head voice. I guess it shows more than anything that Katy could be a respectable artist like Kimbra if she a) could write good songs and b) didn't sell her soul. As for Kimbra, I think the clean, pop production undermines her talents and apparently she sounds amazing live (so my friends tell me).

Her voice is unique, but I think her quirky songs won't break the Australian market. We love LMFAO ffs.

Re: Kimbra.

I really like her new album, but I'm not a fan of the songs which have been released. She is also MUCH better live than she is on the album.

Look forward to seeing her at Falls Festival later this year

Favourite song.


LIVE > ALBUM



etc etc.

Re: Kimbra.

Kimbra is good enough. Who cares if she doesn't achieve main stream success? It's not as if charting is going to validate her as an artist. Her songs aren't really my thing per se, but I don't mind it.

Re: Kimbra.

She's a New Zealander. They really should make the Arias Australia + NZ especially with Scribe and Ladyhawke being nominated too in recent years.

I really adore the Cameo Lover video

Re: Kimbra.

You don't have to be Australian to receive an ARIA, you just have to be a part of the Australian music industry, which Kimbra is.
