OKP Premiere: Watch Kimbra Perform A Lush Live Treatment Of "As You Are" For Artist Journal
Kiwi vocalist Kimbra delivered her sophomore piece The Golden Echo just last year to much acclaim and adoration, blending left-leaning r&b (and its many luminaries) with her soaring vox philosophy. Today we’re proud to bring you an intimate live take of her airy ballad “As You Are” in a conceptual piece for the latest installment of Artist Journal, bringing the lushness of the composition to a new high. Backed by seven-piece string section, composer and piano man, Miss Kimbra Lee stuns with her tender, full-float vocal treatment, as the orchestral accompaniment provides a rock-solid bed for that feathery vox to fly.
The clip also features a short opening vignette of the artist speaking to the nature of the song and its deeper sentiments, divulging the relational turmoil that conceived the brooding balladry of the cut. If this is your first taste of the moody musical madness the New Zealand-bred has been wielding, we insist you get the full, live and direct experience when she hits a stage near you on her forthcoming West Coast tour, the dates for which are listed below. Watch as the lovely Kimbra performs her touching ballad “As You Are” live from the band room and cop her The Golden Echo LP on iTunes today.
