hmv.com reviews… Kimberly Anne @ London’s St Pancras Church
Fresh from a summer full of knockout festival appearances and with a brand new EP to show off, soulful songstress Kimberly Anne lit up London's St Pancras Church last night (August 28th) and we were there to review things...
Kimberly Anne, up and coming singer-songwriter, with incredible soulful songs and even more impressive hair.
St Pancras Church, just round the back of Kings Cross Station in London.
Any good supports?
Young singer-songwriter Kyan opened things up with a great set of low-key soulful folk. He’s definitely one to look out for.
Was it full? And how were the crowd?
Completely sold out, with the back of the church crammed full of people and not a spare space on a pew.
So what was the set like? What did she play?
Kimberly ran through pretty much everything she's ever released, with cuts from her early EPs like 'La La' and 'Bury It There' right through to new tracks like 'Almost On My Feet', she also found time to put in a cover of Yeah Yeah Yeahs' iconic track 'Maps'. It was incredible, every track soared, but was laced with a real intimacy and depth.
Any good between song banter?
Lots, Kimberly is a great talker and seemed genuinely overwhelmed with the crowd’s reaction to the songs.
Did she put on much of a show?
No special effects (it was in a church after all...), but she did bring out a special guest, hmv.com tipped troubadour D/C came out to perform a duet and she even brought a choir out for a song or two.
What was the highlight of the set?
It was a set of tonnes of many highlights, but ‘Hard As Hello’ sounded particularly powerful, stirring and full of verve.
Where can I catch her next?
She’s got a London show at the end of next month and then a full tour in November. You can find all the dates here.
