Sometimes it?s easy to forget that before light and breezy lady pop songs were made for commercials, they were made for people like you and me.
Australian songstress Lenka’s debut piano-driven album Lenka is in the same vein as her breakthrough single ‘The Show’, which is a toe-tapping jaunt through the ups and downs of life delivered in that sweet way only wistful female singers seem able to deliver.
There’s a nice dreamy quality about this release and it?s mature enough to attract “serious’ music fans as well as those who want some pop.
At times Lenka sounds like she could be Regina Spector’s little baggage free sister. There’s nothing massively original about Lenka but there’s nothing offensive either. Instead, it?s the warmest pop we’ve heard so far this year.
