Press release:

The ever-cool KIMBRA is back. Two-time Grammy Award-winning, critically acclaimed New Zealand songstress Kimbra has finally announced her return home with a run a of headline shows in Auckland and Wellington in support of her critically acclaimed new album “Primal Heart”.

Since releasing her third album “Primal Heart” just last month, the now New York-based singer who emerged in 2010 with her colourful indie-pop singles ‘Settle Down’ and ‘Cameo Lover’ has been on a path of continuous evolution. Since becoming 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.

Returning again in 2014 with her sprawling sophomore album “The Golden Echo” which left the folksy stylings of “Vows” behind for something more elastic and experimental, her sticky-sweet mix of electronica, hip-hop and disco on tracks like ‘90s Music’, ‘Love In High Places’ and ‘Miracle’ left critics perplexed and impressed, receiving the endorsement of Paste, Consequence of Sound, Spin and more along the way. And with the anticipation of a co-headline tour with Janelle Monae in 2014, although postponed, Kimbra pursued and came to New Zealand electrifying audiences in Auckland.

Quietly spending the past two years assembling the new album, self-producing and mixing alongside co-producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Angel Olsen, Explosions In The Sky), among other producers in Los Angeles and New Zealand, including hit-machine Skrillex on “Top of the World”, Kimbra’s third body of work “Primal Heart” emerged. Shifting gears with a soulful, sparse yet punchy electronic-pop record featuring singles 'Everybody Knows', 'Top Of The World' and 'Human', Kimbra offers an invitation for listeners to experience the inherent vulnerability in her voice, conveying raw emotion throughout each song. Following up from her one-off performance at Arts Centre Melbourne’s 2017“Supersense” festival and a run of shows through North America with Beck, ODESZA and Son Lux earlier this year, Kimbra finally returns to New Zealand as the “confident, self-actualized star and feminist pop warrior,” (Interview Magazine) we’ve always admired.
