"A simply amazing alterna-pop artist!- Rant

"One of those rare artists that are actually interested in entertaining the audience - she accomplishes this goal wonderfully!" - Sacramento News and Review

"... manages to turn some of the most basic of human experiences into musical hugs that make you realize that sometimes all you need is a change in perspective to make unpleasant memories and experiences rest a little easier in your mind." -Alive and Kicking

"CONSISTENTLY one of Sacramento's best drawing live acts." - S N& R

"This is where music should be headed. Kimberlina has the best voice in Sacramento, if not the world." - Ricochet Magazine

"The band is tight - musically AND vocally. I can hear Simon and Garfunkel type harmonies... The performance is mind blowing!" - CaBands.com

"Sweet vocals over salty lyrics, and top of the line musicianship throughout. The music rocks without being deafening or chaotic, pop without being too sugar-smacked. 8 stars!!! - Whisperin' and Hollerin' (UK)

"A summer blast of '80s guitar-rock intoxication, Oingo Boingo keyboards, and sweet-as-honey lead female vocals that are more beautiful than Gwen Stefani's could ever be." - Reviewcentre (UK)


PR Piece

When the glitter in pop music died in the late '00s, the Kimberlina rushed to give it CPR. Armed with witty, sarcastic lyrics; a truckload of sparkling guitar hooks; pulsating synthesizers; urgent drums; and a voice that captured the crooning sensuality of Garbage's Shirley Manson and the youthful innocence of No Doubt's Gwen Stefani, Kimberlina was able to breathe life into the stagnant world of Pop Music. While the rest of the world roared and rapped, Kimberlina bounced with the adolescent energy of new wave when it was fresh and bursting in Day-Glo.

Hailing from Orange County and Sacramento, California, the Kimberly Trip was formed by guitarist Jeffry-Wynne Prince and drummer Bractune, self-confessed high-school nerds with sci-fi obsessions. Along with vocalist Kimberlina, and bassist Michaelandrew, the Kimberly Trip wraps pointedly funny social observations and introspective confessions around toe-tapping, pogo-inducing rhythms. The single "My Favorite Disaster" is the highlight of the Kimberly Trip's knife-sharp humorous narratives, an ode to disfunctional happiness that wears the nerd label like a badge of honor. However, the group has a serious side as well, best exemplified by the haunting "Memory Fades" and the understated ode to better days "Looking Toward the Sun".

"Unicorns, Glitter, & Heartbreak is the 6th studio album from the band and has been called "A sonic masterpiece; A lo-fi, epic album with an explosive chemistry that is brimming with life-affirming vibes and buoyant rock & roll that is charming and irresistible."
