If you’re my friend on Twitter, you see me doing these random Kimbra outburst out of nowhere, where I am essentially showcasing my love for the New Zealand songbird and yes, all of these feelings are sincere. After SXSW, I have become completely obsessed with her, call it love, infatuation, or obsessive fandom I don’t really care but, she’s amazing.
Initially, when I read that Kimbra was releasing her US version of her debut album Vows, I was confused because after seeing her rock at SXSW, I took to ITunes and downloaded what was Vows– however, that’s not the correct and official debut. The difference with this reincarnation of Vows is new songs, and sadly some of my favorites missing– “Call Me,” and “Wandering Limbs.” The new project, includes some pretty great tracks though like the funky “Come Into My Head,” the almost hip-hop driven “Possy,” and the real soulful, “Something in The Way You Are.”
She’s amazing, and make sure to purchase the album next week via ITunes, and click hereto listen to the NPR stream. Since I mentioned my two favorite Kimbra songs, I will include them in the post as well, not to mention her debut single, “Settle Down.” I will be putting up a full in-depth review of the project following the release of the album.
Pre-order Kimbra Vows here.
Note: Edited after the post, this is a deluxe version that’s why some of the songs from the original are added as a bonus track.
