Album Review: If You Thought 'The Show' Was Lenka's Best Work, Check Out Her Latest Release 'The Bright Side'

By  July 21, 2015

Lenka is capable of more than just advertisement-enhancing jingle-like songs and catchy pop tunes, the Australian artist also has a more personal aspect to her music as seen in her previous album, Shadows, and her latest one, The Bright Side, shares her bubblegum-pop and deeply-emotional vibes in a perfectly equal balance.

Known for her adorable singing style, Lenka revisits her earlier work when she sings the feel-good tracks of the glockenspiel+ukulele driven Get Together and the cute, happy and liberating song Free. "1, 2, it's time for you, 3, 4, to open the door", just how stupidly cute are these lyrics?

Just to contrast the overly joyful tunes, the darker ballads like the electropop-ish Blue Skies and Go Deeper prove that Lenka's unique vocals fit in almost any pop genre there is.

Something new from Lenka's songwriting is the eyebrow-raising theme of motivation like the inspirational pop anthem We Are Powerful with that catchy whistling melody and self-esteem booster and the light-hearted tune of Unique.

The Bright Side is something you shouldn't pass on if an easy-going pop album to put a smile on your face even in your worst day is what you're looking for, and Lenka can probably turn that frown upside down with her eyes closed.
