Biography

Just before Lenka steps on stage to begin recording her video for her first single "The Show," she makes a promise: "I want to write more songs about being in love. On album two you'll hear more of those."

It was 2008, and at the time, her self-titled debut album had yet to drop and there was a lot yet to come for the petite Australian singer, including a move to ... Read more in Amazon's Lenka Store

Editorial Reviews

In Sydney, Australia, Lenka was a teen actress who trained with Cate Blanchett, thereafter landing leading roles on stage, television and indie films. A self-described 'punk-ass art school student' and vocalist/keyboardist for acclaimed indie Electronic/ambient outfit Decoder Ring. She has flung herself into two new worlds simultaneously: she's moved to California and become a solo artist. Whether channelling our long-repressed terrors ('Trouble') or long-lost innocence ('We Will Not Grow Old'), her music evokes primal emotions, unblemished by pretense or cynicism and unashamed of cracking a smile occasionally. Lenka's fresh sensibility extends to every element of her music, as the whimsical, paper art, stoimated videos she creates.'It's a mood-enhancer,' she says of her record, 'I don't like it when people are depressed. I want to cheer them up.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Listening to this CD Just Makes Me Happy November 16, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having a rotten day? Slip in this upbeat CD from Australian singer Lenka and get a little zing of pop music. This talented singer-songwriter has created a wonderful collection of hummable tunes -- there's really not a bad track on this album. I'm a middle-aged mom who usually sticks to show tunes, but this whimsical, thoughtful, cheerful album appeals to all my sing-along sensibilities. My teenage daughters love her, too.

I first heard of Lenka while watching last week's "Grey's Anatomy." Her addictive song "Trouble is a Friend" was played during the closing minutes of the show. I wrote down the name of the CD and ordered it immediately. I have been listening to it ever since. I just love the beat, I love the lyrics, I love the tunes. This is my kind of music. Can't wait to hear her next effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pop Music Doesn't Get Much Better Than This. March 4, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of Lenka from the music video of the song "The Show." I thought that the song was decent and cute, but it didn't really grab me. Still, I decided to get this album.

After repeated listening over the past ten days, I can say that this is one really, truly great pop album. All eleven songs on this albums have nice melodies and are very enjoyable. I especially like "Trouble Is A Friend" and "We Will Not Grow Old."

In terms of sound, I think the mastering engineer (Ted Jensen) did a very good job. Lenka's voice is clear and lifelike. The CD is not too bright and has nice bottom ends.

If you are looking for songs with deep lyrics or complex construction, this album is probably not for you. However, if you enjoy pop music, you will hardly find a better album than this (if you do, please let me know). To me, this album is worth every penny (or cent). I would gladly pay ten times its price to buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Gave Lenka A 2nd Chance and I Was Not Wrong April 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I first saw / heard Lenka on Nocturnal State on VH1. I thought that the song was kind of catchy but Lenka was much too bubbly for my tastes. I than saw her live at south by southwest and had a brand new opinion of her.

On the Show Lenka comes off as young upbeat sugary youthful artist who was too cute for her own good. However after listening to her whole cd and watching her live she has much more of a range than I gave her credit for. Her music is indeed uplifting and poppy but it also uplifting and provides a warming sensation when listening to it. Lenka is definatly a grown up and should not be thought of as a young popstar which was my first impression of her.

If you are looking for a new artist you will not go wrong with giving Lenka a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just so good. June 26, 2009
By whit
Format:Audio CD
I really liked this cd by Lenka. It is bubbly and happy, but I can't the the tune of The Show out of my mind. I just pop it in in my car and go and I feel so floaty and good. I highly recommend this one to anyone who's just sick of angsty teenage boy music and wants something mellow. I also suggest Safe Trip Home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Debut! May 27, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I'd picked up hearings of "The Show" on the radio, and was impressed by her catchy upbeat lyrics and voice. After watching her video for the song, I was even more impressed with the creative force behind her music. I now almost feel guilty that I got this CD for $8.99. It's worth more than that. There are a few songs that are less spectacular than others, but overall, even the slower, less catchy tunes can be listened to repeatedly without getting irritated. You owe it to yourself to listen to "Trouble is a Friend" - by far, the best song on the album, but there are so many other gems here, like "Knock Knock", "Dangerous and Sweet", "Don't Let Me Fall", and of course, "The Show". Hopefully her second release will be just as refreshing and sweet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! April 13, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Saw Lenka as a support artist to Missy Higgins. I think she was deliberately down-playing herself (dresses in retro 80's garb), but she really grabbed the show. She has shuch personality (not that Missy does not). Bought the CD and put it on auto re-play in the car. Excellent music, great range, great new act. Love those Aussies!

4.0 out of 5 stars What a pleasant surprise, over and over again! April 7, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The purchase of this cd has been a strange experience for me. As another reviewer wrote, she first heard Trouble Is A Friend on Grey's Anatomy, wrote it down and bought it. Same with me, so cheers to Grey's for adding such good music to their shows (as they have done from day one). So, my Lenka cd arrives and the first song made me realize I was in for something good. And I was....but I never seemed to make it to the end of the cd, either I had already arrived at work or timing was just off. So here I am tonight watching 90210 and there is another song with the quirkiness of Lenka or Lily Allen so I quick typed up the lyrics that were being sung.....low and behold. It's Lenka with We Will Not Grow Old. Even nicer is that it's on the cd I already have. So, I obviously need to listen to this cd from beginning to end because I sure was missing out. Though there are a few 'weaker' moments on the cd, hardly anything below 85%, but with The Show, Trouble Is A Friend and We Will Not Grow Old ranking in at 100%.....this makes for one helluva cd. Don't think twice, it's a good buy :-)
