KIMBRA, the ever-cool, two-time Grammy Award-winning, critically acclaimed New Zealand songstress is returning to Brisbane - catch her at The Triffid on July 16.

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.

Having become 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.

After her sprawling 2014 sophomore album “The Golden Echo” which left the folksy stylings of “Vows” behind for something more elastic and experimental, KIMBRA has quietly spent the past two years assembling her 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.

Kimbra’s third body of work “Primal Heart” shifts gears with a soulful, sparse yet punchy electronic-pop record featuring singles 'Everybody Knows', 'Top Of The World' and 'Human'.

“Primal Heart is glittering electro-pop, sprinkled with '80s synths, spacey grooves, and her most cohesive record to-date.” – PAPER Magazine

“Primal Heart is an incredible’s a big, bold, really inventive pop record.” – NPR

Nice to know - The Triffid beer garden is open from 12pm for drinks and food.
