CD Review: Kimbra - Vows

Demonstrating she’s not just  the other voice on Gotye’s recent chart-topper Someone I Used To Know, Kimbra  has quickly followed up with the release of her first album.

Vows is as eclectic as it is well-produced, allowing Kimbra to demonstrate twelve varying vocal styles and arrangements.

Among the highlights the album opener Settle Down features a neat mixture of jazzy vocals fused with melodic bass riffs while the incredibly catchy Cameo Lover is a delightful 60s wall of sound inspired pop .

The heart felt soulful live performance of Plain Gold Ring  displays that even Kimbra is capable of giving Adele a run for her money while theres pure 80s while the album finale Warrior is a wondrous nod to 80s electro pop. An impressive debut.
