We heart her! So much!
We have been a fan of Kimbra since this post, way back in 2010.
We had her perform at our big SXSW party this year and it's been so exciting to see her soar with the international success of her Gotye collaboration!
We talk to the super talented Kiwi about that little song that could, how she did it her way, discovering her sound, making it in the business, conquering America, and so much more!
Read some highlights from our chat… after the jump!
And watch our interview with Kimbra in full (above)!
AND Somebody I Used To Know is part of the iTunes top ten TWICE!!
How is this possible?
Nice one, Gotye (and Kimbra!)
They can totally sing for realz.
Gotye and Kimbra are MUSICAL MASTERS of dysfunctional love!
On saturday night, the Australian/New Zealand duo amped up the emotion on the Saturday Night Live stage, performing a mellow yet touching rendition of their international mega-hit, Somebody I Used To Know.
While it may be a tad over-played at this point, you can't deny how catchy and relatable this tune is!!
Check out Gotye and Kimbra's lovely, live duet (above)!
Yeah. Consider our brain BLOWN TO SMITHEREENS!
That is how much we CANNOT HANDLE the perfection that is THIS!
As if it were not excruciating enough that we have to wait a whole more week before Glee returns from its hiatus to soothe our soul, the full performance of Darren Criss and Matthew Bomer, who is guest starring as Blaine's big brother, belting out the Gotye/Kimbra SMASH Somebody That I Used To Know, has hit the net!
Give it a watch (above)!
Perfection! In EVERY sense of the word!
And we don't care that they're supposed to play siblings!
Them singing THAT song at each other is HAWT! HAWT! HAWT!
WE DON'T WANT TO WAIT ANOTHER WEEK! GAH!
Holy crap. Holy crap. Holy crap.
When GLEE FINALLY returns to us in two weeks, not only will Matt Bomer be appearing as Blaine's older brother Cooper, but according to the new behind-the-scenes promo for the new episode, appropriately titled Big Brother, he and Darren Criss will be performing a DUET of the Gotye/Kimbra hit Somebody That I Used To Know!
Ch-ch-check it all out (above)!
Guh! So handsome!
That Anderson family, man! Some seriously PERFECT genes!
And we love that Cooper is famous for singing one of those free credit score commercial songs! Ha!
Is it April 10th yet?!
Our beloved Kimbra played a new song for us at our big "One Night In Austin" 2012 event!
Check out Get Into My Head above!!!
It's really exciting to see the recent success she's had with Gotye and their song Somebody That I Used To Know. And, it's even MORE EXCITING to have Kimbra perform at our big One Night In Austin bash this Saturday!
Check out her stunning solo song Settle Down (above)!
And, making our party even cooler this year is that we are selling tickets for the first time, which will GUARANTEE admission, and 100% of the ticket sales go to benefit the amazing work of the Vh1 Save The Music Foundation!
PLUS, also for the first time, our party is an official SXSW event this year! So if all ticket holders get in and we haven't reached capacity, your festival badge can also get you admission into our big bash.
We can't wait!!!!
