An Evening With Kimbra

Black Sky (Reimagined)

On the heels of a highly successful Australia and New Zealand tour earlier this year, New Zealand songstress Kimbra has announced a one-off return show for Wellington audiences. This up close and intimate show will see Kimbra perform at Caroline on Wednesday November 14.

It is a special kind of show that I haven't done before performing some of my songs in an entirely new way, incorporating upright bass and piano. – Kimbra

Tickets for all shows go on sale at 1pm, Tuesday October 30.

My Live Nation members can secure tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale beginning 12pm, Monday October 29.

The two-time Grammy Award-winning, critically acclaimed singer and actor will perform the special one-off show in Wellington whilst in New Zealand and Australia as very special guest on Talking Heads' David Byrne’s American Utopia Tour.

The 28-year-old artist, who is known for mixing pop and R&B with a tinge of electronica and jazz elements to her music – to produce a very unique timbre – became 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.

Kimbra’s third body of work Primal Heart, released earlier this year, saw Kimbra shift gears with a soulful, sparse yet punchy electronic-pop record featuring singles Everybody Knows, Top Of The World and Human. After heading back to the studio, Kimbra has unveiled a brand new EP Songs From Primal Heart, Reimagined, featuring acoustic versions of four songs from her acclaimed record Primal Heart – out today via Warner Music.

Of the new EP, Songs From Primal Heart Reimagined, Kimbra said "My album Primal Heart was a record that allowed me to open up in so many new ways. I wanted to keep pushing the potential of how these songs could be heard. I asked the incredibly talented Lars Horntveth to produce + arrange the songs in a new setting, reimagined through the lens of his unique melodic intuition, also known as the sound of Norwegian band, Jaga Jazzist (one of my favorite bands!). We brought a small group of amazing musicians on board to recreate 4 songs from Primal Heart in a more intimate, live, stripped back setting at Red Bull studios in New York.”

An intimate, reimagined evening takes this concept into the live realm with Kimbra performing in a rare, stripped back incarnation of guitar, upright bass and piano across the US, before returning to New Zealand this November touring with David Byrne and giving Wellington audiences a very special one-off performance for “An Intimate, Reimagined Evening with Kimbra”.
