5 stars"

Review by Krystle on 6th November, 2011

I always usually just listen to my Ipod playlists, But this is always a Cd I can just whack on and let it play all the way through while I do the housework or when i'm just resting on the couch. A good buy.

Description

Spending her early years gigging around her native New Zealand, it was only once Kimbra borrowed a small eight-track recorder from her school’s music department that her song writing blossomed in earnest. This new tool opened up a new perspective, leading to a flurry of tracks that featured her signature layered vocals, including the inkling that became single ‘Settle Down’. Discovered at the tender age of 17, Kimbra relocated to Melbourne to follow her musical path.

Kimbra’s debut record Vows, three and-a-half years in the making, charts not only her growth and development musically over this time, but personally as well. Recorded and arranged at home as well as in various studios, it presents her unique worldview on life and love. Even at twenty-one years of age, Kimbra already possesses the maturity and musical sophistication of the mavericks she is so often compared to – from vocal legends Nina Simone and Jeff Buckley, to radicals the likes of Prince, and contemporary artists such as Björk and Janelle Monaé.

Kimbra self-produced Vows alongside Australian Urban export M-Phazes (Amerie, Pharoahe Monch) and the refined skills of François Tétaz (Bertie Blackman, Gotye); whose focus on imagery taught her to treat the album like a film.

Vows establishes Kimbra as a significant talent. A fresh, exciting voice in today’s music industry.
