It’s rare that you hear a song and struggle to be able to comfortably categorize it. Kiwi recording artist Kimbra is new to the scene in the United States, but has been recording in Australia for nearly six years. “Settle Down” is a single off of her forthcoming album. This song could fit comfortably in rotation on a pop radio station . . . and I’m sure it will be soon, but it’s really sophisticated and exceptionally performed. I can’t wait to hear the full offering. Kimbra will be showcased at SXSW this year.
Best Place and Time to Listen: The day after your 30th birthday.
If This Song Was a Celebrity It Would Be: January Jones.
