We’re starting to suspect some creative collusion amongst our favorite New Zealand artists. The past few weeks have brought us a continuous flow of new music from Sola Rosa, Wallace and Electric Wire Hustle. And now Kimbra joins the Kiwi jam session with a hot new single of her own called “Sweet Relief.”
Reportedly a leak from her upcoming third album (due in 2017), “Sweet Relief” is a flirtatiously suggestive alt-R&B groove. Mesmerizing synth, funky guitar and rhythmic percussion provide infectious accompaniment for Kimbra’s breathy lyrics and erotic coos. The song also comes with captivating visuals by Phillip David Stearns, featuring vibrant graphics, bold hues, enticing textures and lifelike forms that make us want to reach out and touch the screen.
Listen to the song and peep the unique video below. While we await further news on the upcoming album, keep up with Kimbra via social media and heat up your playlist by downloading “Sweet Relief” today from iTunes.
