I’m the latest fan of this kickass bedroom looper, Kawehi.
She recently created a $3000 Kickstarter project to fund her Robot Heart series – a collection of songs created from a robot girl’s perspective – and exceeded her goal by a further $25,000. People seem to be really, really into this artist and it’s not hard to understand why when you see her perform.
Her cover of Nirvana’s Heart Shaped Box (above) is the first time I’ve seen another artist attempt this song and do it justice. Yeah, I’m pretty protective of the original.
Despite her success Kawehi doesn’t take herself so seriously that she won’t hang out in her bedroom with her dogs while she records. It’s refreshingly “real” for an industry so obsessed with presenting an image, and I love that. And her dogs, who get progressively funnier during the video above.
And hey, are you into pretty girls who do kickass stuff while singing bad words?
I can’t wait to see what she does next so I’m basically stalking her on social media now. If you want to do the same here’s where you can find her stuff:
Happy Friday everyone!
