Bury It There
When we recently spotted that George Ergatoudis, head of music at Radio 1, had tweeted: “Competition is fierce amongst female singer/songwriters, but Kimberly Anne has a GREAT song Bury It There”, we had to listen. Thankfully we weren't disappointed as Kimberly proves herself as a true individual player with this radio-friendly, indie-pop offering that comes complete with a striking video. The BRIT School graduate has already seen praise from some renowned tastemakers including Chris Hawkins at 6Music who describes her as having a “distinctive voice” and calls Bury It There a “perfectly catchy debut single”. Also claiming early backing is DJ Caroline from Q Radio who appears to admire her “punk spirit” and Ruth Barnes from Amazing Radio who states “she's gonna hit the mainstream radio playlist very very soon, I can feel it in my bones”.
Adding to the arsenal of heavyweights behind her, production duties came from Julian Simmons who has previously worked with the likes of Ed Sheeran and the Guillemots.
