I remember watching Grey's Anatomy one night and being struck by a song playing (you know, in one of those super emo, end-of-show montage scenes that may or may not make me cry). After some crafty internet keyword searching, I found out the tune was called "Trouble is a Friend," by Lenka, an Australian television actress turned singer-songwriter. With her ethereal vocals that cut straight to the heart, Lenka pens catchy pop-folk tunes guaranteed to turn the worst of frowns upside down. If you like what you hear, we heartily recommend getting her album. (You might recognize her song "The Show" from those Old Navy commercials, too.)
She's busy kicking off her North American tour, but she took some time out to tell I Heart Daily what she's been loving lately!
One item you can't live without on the road? Paw Paw ointment. It's an Aussie lip balm/anything cream.
Favorite beauty product? I.D. mineral makeup.
Book(s) you love? Anything by Haruki Murakami.
Favorite health trick? Neti Pot. I just started using one. It's an Indian nose clearing remedy. Really strange sensation, but amazing!
Favorite movie of all time? It's a tie between The Princess Bride and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Now, watch Lenka performing "The Show" on the Conan O'Brien show:
