Aloud & Proud

Though the female quintet promotes itself as an ensemble, Kimberley’s strong personality comes shining through as she often fronts the band with her ardent determination and self-reliance.
Sound of the Underground
This debut single is a dance-pop release recorded in 2002. Its sultry, whispered lyrics lie on framework of synth loops played on the digital piano twinned with whirring guitar and syncopated back beat. The texture thickens with the ‘’sound of the underground’’ chorus as more electronic motifs add a mechanical, almost menacing feel to the track.
