Unless you have been living in a cave for the past 6 months you have probably seen Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know.” Have you wondered who that girl was with the haunting melodic voice?
Kimbra is also an import from the Australian market. (by way of New Zealand.) Her debut album in the states, Vows, is a solid offering. The album has a smooth jazz-pop sound that is catchy and easy to relax to.
The last single I will highlight is “Good Intent.” It has this sort of slinky calypso sound that evokes the emotion of the message of the song so well the lyrics aren’t even needed to convey the theme that damage awaits those who give into temptation. The video has an excellent group dance number at the end.
The album is about as clean as they come. There is not any foul language or even any real adult content. Your Stake President wouldn’t even cringe if you played it at a Church Dance. More than you can say for Katy Perry.
