You may not have heard of Kimbra yet. That's going to change, quickly. The New Zealand native first came to our attention earlier this year as the body painted ex-girlfriend in Gotye's smash hit 'Somebody That I Used to Know.'
What thrilled me is that since I heard that song, I've felt it embodied a rare quality often sought but seldom truly achieved in art, a quality with roots that are embedded firmly in our evolutionary soil.
With over 160 million views of the music video for "Somebody That I Used to Know" on YouTube, Gotye's star has risen to heights visible beyond Tasmanian borders. If you turn on the radio, you can even spot it in the daylight.
