Kate Miller-Heidke redefines the boundaries of pop music
Kate Miller-Heidke has the critics raving with her fourth solo record, O Vertigo!, an album that playfully redefines the boundaries of pop music, while pushing her voice into uncharted vocal terrain.
After launching the album with a sold-out series of intimate acoustic shows around the country, Kate returns with a full band of some of the nation’s best musicians to bring O Vertigo! to life in all its glory.
“A career-best album. Miller-Heidke hits it out of the park… O Vertigo! is an album of smart, challenging and mature pop music.’ 4 stars, Rolling Stone
Presented by One Louder & The Harbour Agency
From the tight harmonies on the acapella (apart from a single synth playing block-chords) Rock This Baby To Sleep, to the distorted hums that buzz in the opening Offer it Up and the rapid-fire melismas of the title track, it’s hard to think of any pop album that treats the voice as so versatile an instrument… It’s a stunning collection that demonstrates exactly why she’s one of our most exciting musicians.
Anyone who pledged to the Oh, Vertigo! crowd-funding campaign can rest assured that their money was put to good use as, with a clear headspace and support from fans, Miller-Heidke has found a healthy blend of the quirky elements of 2008’s Curiouser and more serious nature of 2012’s Nightflight.
