The New Zealand-raised and Melbourne-based pop singer-songwriter Kimbra, who is hopefully still spending that “Somebody That I Used To Know” dough, is getting ready to release her sophomore album, and its first single is a deeply weird single called “90s Music.” It sounds like Ke$ha trying to be tUnE-yArDs, or like Max Tundra producing Avril Lavigne, or something. I make my living describing music, and I don’t know that I can properly describe this one. It’s like top-40 radio eating itself, and I can’t even tell if it’s weird on purpose. The song debuted on Australian radio recently, and you can hear it below.

UPDATE: Here’s the official audio:

Kimbra’s new album is coming this year, and apparently she worked with Muse’s Matt Bellamy on it, so this should be a weird one.

  1. Reminds me of some of the stuff on that new ceo album. Not really feeling it.

  2. Not sure what direction this is, but I had really high hopes for her four years ago. She needs to stick with this:
    Listen to anything from those Sing Song studios session, it had so much promise….then gotye happened.

  3. When it got to the chorus, I started feeling the hell out of this.
    The verses, I don’t know…something tells me this isn’t the final mix.
