This review is from: Lenka (Audio CD)
I first heard Lenka's song "The Show" on the radio on a trip to Malaysia and loved it. It was one of those moments where you simply have to capture a few words and do a google search for the lyrics. Coming up with her name I watched her music video on YouTube and feel in love not just with the song but with her as well.
Lenka is 30+ but sounds 10-15 years younger. Her songs belie a very innocent outlook on life and the simple rhymes and melodies give you a feeling that life is wonderful, mysterious and sometimes sad; much like a child's view.
Lenka's voice is lovely and has inklings of Diana Vickers in it. Being from Australia she also has some lovely pronunciations of words - refreshingly un-American!
"The Show" is very unique on the album - one of the most upbeat. At first I was disappointed that the other songs were not all in the same positive vein but after just a few listens I found the other songs growing on me and some of the other's are now my favourites.
With her simple lyrics and lovely voice, Lenka gets into your head and makes you a happier person.
