I’ve been a fan of Kimbra ever since City and Colour’s Dallas Green covered her song, ‘Settle Down‘ on triple j’s ‘Like A Version’ segment, which lead me to look up what else Kimbra had released and ultimately, I’ve been a fan ever since.
‘Everybody Knows’ is the first single from the NZ artist’s third album “Primal Heart”, coming early next year.
It’s unlike the usual sound you would be used to from Kimbra and sees the ‘Settle Down’ singer moving away from her power jazz-pop roots into bare, ethereal, alt-pop and experimental RnB, a very luscious combination of genres and sounds.
It’s really special to share this with you. It was one of the more emotionally physically demanding videos I’ve made to date but I’m proud of what we achieved and very excited it’s out in the world. – Kimbra
Towards the end of the song (pretty much when we see Kimbra getting strangled by a huge piece of cloth), the song switches up slightly and is very reminiscent to Brooklyn’s Tei Shi – not that we mind.
And if this is the direction Kimbra is heading in, then I’m sure that this girl crush we’ve got on her will just develop more and more down the track.
