A song like “Future Wind” has a distinct pop sound to it that reminds me of why exactly I fell in love with Kimbra the first time I heard her album “Vows”. Then as we transition into “It’s Whenever”, the pace slows down and becomes much closer to new wave (i.e. something you’d expect to see out of the later ‘80’s/early ‘90’s)
Regardless of what you want to call this (I’d combine “new wave” and “electronica” to form “newtronica” if that tag doesn’t already exist, but that’s just me) it’s a lot of fun to listen to in a dance sort of way where it’s not overly poppy but definitely not angry or boring either.
