The two-time Grammy Award-winning, critically acclaimed singer and actor will perform the special one-off show in Melbourne whilst in Australia and New Zealand as very special guest on Talking Heads’ David Byrne’s American Utopia Tour. Melbourne holds a special place for Kimbra, calling it her home for several years before moving to LA.
The 28-year-old artist, who is known for mixing pop and R&B with a tinge of electronica and jazz elements to her music – to produce a very unique timbre – became a household name in 2012 on her duet with Gotye on the ubiquitous eleven-time ARIA certified Platinum and multiple Grammy Award-winning single ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’. Her own debut album “Vows”, released in the same year, showcased the artistic breadth of a performer more eccentric and autonomous than simply a few fleeting vocal lines.
Kimbra’s third body of work “Primal Heart”, released earlier this year, saw Kimbra shift gears with a soulful, sparse yet punchy electronic-pop record featuring singles ‘Everybody Knows’, ‘Top Of The World’ and ‘Human’. After heading back to the studio, Kimbra has unveiled a brand new EP “Songs From Primal Heart, Reimagined”, featuring acoustic versions of four songs from her acclaimed record “Primal Heart” – out today via Warner Music Australia.
Of the new EP, “Songs From Primal Heart Reimagined”, Kimbra said “My album ‘Primal Heart’ was a record that allowed me to open up in so many new ways. I wanted to keep pushing the potential of how these songs could be heard. I asked the incredibly talented Lars Horntveth to produce + arrange the songs in a new setting, re-imagined through the lens of his unique melodic intuition, also known as the sound of Norwegian band, Jaga Jazzist (one of my favorite bands!). We brought a small group of amazing musicians on board to recreate 4 songs from Primal Heart in a more intimate, live, stripped back setting at Red Bull studios in New York.”
An intimate, re-imagined evening takes this concept into the live realm with Kimbra performing in a rare, stripped back incarnation of guitar, upright bass and piano across the US, before returning to Australia this November touring with David Byrne and giving Melbourne audiences a very special performance for “An Intimate, Re-imagined Evening with Kimbra”.
