Introducing: Kimbra

Earlier this week, I touched on the awesome quality of Kimbra's voice, thanks to her collaboration with Miami Horror for their upcoming debut album, Illumination. Aside from their stellar production, it was her crisp and unique tones that immediately stood out. With that said, we're giving the New Zealander her own headlining piece within the Beaston-files today. It's well-deserved.



On her debut single, Settle Down, Kimbra enlisted the rad power of producers Francois Tetaz (Architecture in Helsinki and Gotye) and Aussie-dude, M-Phazes (Amerie and Pharoahe Monch), to construct a song that was equally parts fitting of her voice and quirky aesthetic. Kimbra notes that the song is, "a rhythmic collage of handclaps, cheeky horn parping and a ballooning bassline married to an escapist lyric about domesticity".


I say, this is an immediate go-to for repeated plays and I can't wait to hear more from the 20-year old up-and-comer.


Settle Down is taken from her forthcoming debut album, Vows. You can download it for free after watching the video, which is equally pleasing.
