Scene stealer

From one KD to another. KIMYA DAWSON is a woman whose career has been given a huge shot in the arm thanks to Juno, by far and away the best movie of 2007. For those who have seen it, the above picture will be very familiar as Juno and Bleeker sing out the final scene with their cute cover of Anyone Else But You by Dawson’s old band The Moldy Peaches.

A bit like Death Cab For Cutie and The OC, there is every possibility Dawson might very well be forever known as “the Juno singer” seeing as the film’s score was based on her music and six of her solo songs are on the soundtrack CD.

Quite how the American never passed out on stage in those Moldy Peaches tours while head-to-toe in her rabbit costume is a mystery we’ve never managed to solve. Sadly there’s no fancy dress in Dawson’s current incarnation, but at least she hasn’t ditched any of the quirky charm that made her such a unique and, quite frankly bonkers, songwriter.
