Hey Kimbra!

My questions stem from you interview with Hollywood Life. You mention striking the balance between connecting via social media, but retaining some mystery. Is that mystery more for privacy and wanting some distance, or do you like to keep people guessing?

It interests me because it's becoming more common for people to share every bit of their lives online, hoping to find connections that they can't find locally. Reading that you acknowledge that you desire a balance struck a chord because I've be trying to find it also. I've thought a lot about identity attachment, and what defines healthy/unhealthy attachments. I think it has to do with the motivations behind the post. If it's not feeding into any insecurities or desire to hurt others, then it could be healthy. What do you define as healthy or unhealthy attachments?

Right now, I feel like humanity has been given this powerful tool, but we haven't matured culturally to handle it responsibly. Many users are just shooting their thoughts not really looking to have a discussion, which defeats the purpose of the Internet because it's mainly for communication.

Sorry for the lengthy post! I have a lot of thoughts on the subject, but tried to boil it down to the essentials. Here are some quick questions I have:

What do you feel is the biggest difference, culturally, about New York and LA? Do you like one more than the other?

What about Japan's culture interests you?

Do you watch any anime?

Have you heard the band Death Grips? What do you think of their music?

I also wanted to take a moment to show my appreciation. I'm enjoying the new songs! Looking at your body or work as a whole I feel that this new album will be a great compliment. The more stripped down instrumentals allows you to shine, and also flex that wonderful voice! That's not to say the instrumentals are lacking either. The melodies you create still stand out as well. Like the both of you flowing together so naturally. Can't wait to hear the rest!

I also appreciate the transparency you demonstrate. It shows that you value your connection to your fans.
