Bergen-based Tru Thoughts regular Kinny is an interesting character. An opera singer turned soul chanteuse, she relocated from Canada to Bergen in Norway some years back. She also suffers from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, a condition that helped shape the dark, sometimes bleak lyrical content of this second full-length. For an album with such dark subject matter, it's a surprisingly breezy set. Produced by Norwegian crew Souldrop, Can't Kill A Dame With Soul confidently shuffles between vintage soul, jaunty reggae, hip-hop, R&B and neo-soul, occasionally pausing to deliver a genuine musical curveball (see the inventive cover of the Cure's "The Love Cats").
