“Kimbra throws every angle of modern fem-pop at the wall with such ball-lightning enthusiasm that all of it sticks,” the Guardian’s Mark Beaumont writes in a review of the New Zealand singer’s London performance at Union Chapel. “She’s a seamless concoction of Regina Spektor’s cutesy quirks, Gaga’s cranky glamour, Beyoncé’s pop fritz, Adele’s outsider soul and the electronic adventurism of St Vincent, building several songs around sampled tribal clatter and backing choirs of her own voice, expertly looped live.” Kimbra, 22, tours North America through September and October.
