Kate Miller-Heidke

We wrote about her back in 2008 when her second album Curiouser had been released, and now we've gotten a few tracks in the inbox this week that we can't wait to share. Kate Miller-Heidke was trained in Opera and was supposed to sing with Opera Australia (the principal opera company in Australia) but decided instead to venture into the pop-electro territory with her partner in life and music, Keir Nuttal. "We had no songs. What we had was a huge burst of inspiration. We went into this album with a vision. We mapped out how we wanted it to sound; the aesthetic, the spirit of it. Experimental, hooky, unashamedly pop...we wanted to exploit everything that's unique about my music."

I was a superfan about Kate's hilarious and infectious "Can't Shake It" song two years ago (and still hold is as my personal dance anthem), but I find myself won over yet again with "Are You F*cking Kidding Me? (Facebook Song)." "Politics in Space" is another track off of Curiouser, which was finally released in the US this year in March (her US debut). If you love what you hear, you can catch Kate opening for Ben Folds this summer and performing at the Lilith Fair, and tour dates can be found here.
