Lenka is the debut studio album by Australian recording artist Lenka. It was released on 23 September 2008 by Epic Records. Those looking to satisfy a sweet-toothed craving for pop music should sink their teeth into this debut, which introduces Lenka as one of 2008's strongest newcomers. Horns, cellos, violas, keyboards, and vibraphones share equal space here, creating a sound that's at once lushly elegant and bubbly commercial. Having already cut her teeth with the Decoder Ring, Lenka now asserts herself as a competent vocalist and songwriter, penning three of the album's tracks while co-writing the remaining eight. "The Show," "Bring Me Down," and "Trouble Is a Friend" all brim with the cleverly crafted hooks of a Max Martin composition, and Lenka's fondness for internal rhyme helps tighten her phrases into concentrated balls of pop melody…
”Lenka” is the self-titled debut album by Australian singer/songwriter Lenka. It was released 23 September, 2008 through Epic Records. This is Lenka's first solo album after having been a member of the group Decoder Ring.
Lenka (born Lenka Kripac in 1978) is an Australian television actress turned ensemble musician with Decoder Ring, turned solo singer-songwriter, most famous worldwide for her song "The Show", which has been used in numerous advertisements, most notably for Old Navy.
Her vocal stylings offer a juxtaposition of catchy pop and layered, complicated world music influences. This juxtaposing is current in popular music, spreading through the internet. Similar layering exists in the music of the anti-folk Russian-born New York City-based musician Regina Spektor, or the French/Israeli/Tunisian tri-language singer-songwriter Yael Naim, or the eclectic Italian violinist/mandolinist Alessandro Monti.
She was previously best known as the third host of a long-running children's breakfast cartoon program Cheez TV in Australia, and has appeared in numerous Australian television serials
