Australian pop siren Lenka takes a 360-degree approach to her music, cultivating a fantastically quirky visual aesthetic to match the lighthearted lilt of her sunny compositions. A former actress and art student who trained with Cate Blanchett and majored in sculpture, Lenka builds her own stage sets, designs her own outfits, creates stop-motion videos, and choreographs her own dance routines.
In our exclusive interactive interview, she talks about the making of her new album, why she wants to work with David Bowie, and recording the sound of her own heart — the perfect Valentine’s Day gift to her fans. Choose the questions yourself, and watch Lenka instantly respond.
Due out this April, Lenka’s second album, simply titled Two, continues her evolution as a solo artist. While her self-titled debut saw her emerge gleefully from her role in Aussie band Decoder Ring, the new record finds her embracing a wider palette, exploring balladry, jazz arrangements, and melancholy laments along with her trademark uplifting pop.
