New Zealand pop singer Kimbra will never rise above the multi-platinum success and Grammy Award for her feature on Gotye’s 2011 “Somebody That I Used To Know.” On her 2nd LP, The Golden Echo, she continues the same style of indie pop from what we’ve seen in her last album, bright pop synths and catchy hooks.
