SINGLE REVIEW: Kimbra – Everybody Knows
After the release of her 2014 record “The Golden Echo” Kimbra disappeared into her home studio to start work on what would become her third studio record. The New Zealand songstress has completely reinvented herself yet again with a mature alternative pop direction. It’s more a branch from her debut record “Vows” with its DIY production but incorporates slick electronic synths that help create a grittier pop sound. The song looks at maturing from a relationship which has left you hurt and broken. It’s about accepting the personal growth and realising that everyone else will see what sort of person he is eventually. “Everybody knows about what you do, everybody saw and sold the truth. I was young and gullible but baby I grew now the whole world’s watching you”. The lyrics perfectly intertwine with the mature production that show’s a growth in her forever evolving sound. It’s not as instantly catchy as “Settle Down” or “90’s Music” but it’s not meant to be. It’s more about the production and lyrically exposing a more vulnerable side of her. It grows on you with each listen and will have you excited to hear the rest of her new record “Primal Heart” which has currently slated for a 2018 release.
