KIMBRA An Intimate, Reimagined Evening With Kimbra
Kimbra will now play Meow on Wednesday, November 14 (no change of date). Tickets purchased for Caroline are now valid for Meow without the need for exchange.
The two-time Grammy Award-winning, critically acclaimed singer and actor will perform the special one-off show in Wellington whilst in New Zealand and Australia as a very special guest on Talking Heads David Byrne’s American Utopia Tour.
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, reimagined through the lens of his unique melodic intuition, also known as the sound of Norwegian band, Jaga Jazzist (one of my favourite 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 set at Red Bull studios in New York.”
An intimate, reimagined 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 New Zealand this November touring with David Byrne and giving Wellington audiences a very special one-off performance for “An Intimate, Reimagined Evening with Kimbra”.
