Just one week after unveiling her epic music video for lead single “90’s Music“, New Zealand singer-songwriter Kimbra debuts two brand-new tracks titled “Nobody But You” and “Love In High Places“! Both songs serve as exclusive promotional singles when you pre-order her upcoming sophomore album The Golden Echo, which is scheduled for release on August 19 via Warner Bros. Records. “Nobody But You” is a brisk, upbeat neo-soul number driven by hard-hitting drums, plinking keyboards, and a explosion of Motown-inspired sounds, while “Love In High Places” is an ethereal and funky mid-tempo ballad that wouldn’t be out of place on a Erykah Badu or Janelle Monáe album with its heavy hand claps and spastic guitars. Following “90’s Music“, these two sound drastically different but don’t stretch too far from some of the material featured on her debut Vows. What’s clear is that The Golden Echo is shaping up to be one of 2014’s more interesting releases and I can’t wait to hear more. Stay tuned – What do you guys think?
