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.
Based on the success of his single "Somebody That I Used To Know," multi-instrumentalist Gotye has been gaining a great deal of momentum around the world. Not bad for a guy who didn't speak a stitch of English until the age of 6 or so.
