She’s the opera singer who possesses a perverse, potty-mouthed sense of humour, capable of swinging from a beautiful ballad, such as The Last Day On Earth, to one of the sharpest slaps in the face you’ll ever hear, Are You F-cking Kidding Me? Her first Best Of is a generous 37-track affair, gathering songs from her early EPs (Telegram and Comikaze) and four albums, plus a stack of live tracks, as well as a new tune, You’ve Underestimated Me, Dude. Underestimate her at your peril; she’s one of the most interesting pop artists we’ve produced in the past decade. Can’t wait for Act Two.
The Best Of Kate Miller-Heidke: Act One is out now via Sony.
