FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FIRST-EVER UK REGIONAL HEADLINE TOUR BEGINNING JULY 22TH
“That's talent, right there!”—TREVOR NELSON (BBC RADIO 1XTRA)
“Kymberley Kennedy is a vocal traffic stopper" —DATA TRANSMISSION
"If you love indie music you are going to fall in love" —SOUNDSCAPE MAGAZINE
Kymberley Kennedy has announced details of her eagerly anticipated debut album. “HEAD GAMES". The BREAKSPOLL® Award-winning, UK-based singer/songwriter’s first full-length solo release arrives everywhere on August 15th via Blackout Recordings and will celebrate its release on her first headline tour beginning July 22th at Keighley's, Exchange Arts Centre (see below itinerary) and www.kymberleykennedy.co.uk.
“HEAD GAMES” includes the single, “All I Wanted,” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8I4cqs1GNA) which featured as the main theme song in the US movie Syrup, starring Amber Heard. The album also features "Make Me Wanna" which charted in the Beatport Top 100. The video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7ivWHU7Dos), directed by Linden Feng, premiered on VEVO last year alongside singles "I Decide" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKrm-5CIyeE) and "DKM" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVNY4CLga10), demonstrating her "fierce side" cosigns POPCORKER who hailed her as an artist "set to slay 2016 indefinitely".
Title track "Head Games", which premiered on YouTube on June 21st, amassing a respectable 10,000 views within 24 hours, offers an enchanting prelude to the forthcoming LP and will be available to download from iTunes on June 28th, 2016. Fans can pre-order the single on iTunes here (https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/head-games-single/id1126068015). Ethereal vocals and pulsating synths evoke a sombre sense of immediacy before conceding to the mantra "we're just a series of complicated head games". Both raw yet intricate, and exposed yet self-assured, "Head Games" invokes the same hypnotic elegance, song-writing prowess and artistic musical style that have defined Kennedy's distinctive sound.
Already a BREAKSPOLL Award Winner ("Best New Track") thanks to her featured contribution to Break Beat producer A.Skillz's smash "Dead Ringer (Feat. Kymberley Kennedy)", she's also nominated for two awards (Outstanding Band/ Artist and Outstanding Songwriter) at this year's Grassroots Awards.
To seal the deal, James Warren recently gave his approval of "I Need Your Lovin'" (https://soundcloud.com/kymberley-kennedy/i-need-your-lovin) (also featured on her imminent debut LP) - her sultry version of "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime" by the Korgis.
Kennedy, who has always taken a very hands-on approach with each project, is giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at the cover shoot for her album artwork, now streaming on her official website (http://kymberleykennedy.tumblr.com/post/144527652088/debut-album-photoshoot-behind-the-scenes-a). "Head Games" has producers lining up to remix it from JFB (two time winner of the DMC World DJ Championships) and the pioneer of Big Beat, Cut La Roc. "Head Games" (single) is available to pre-order on iTunes now (https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/head-games-single/id1126068015) and will be available worldwide on June 28th with the full LP available from August 15th 2016.
