I have loved Kimbra ever since YTMatt turned me on to her a while ago, and I fell in love with her “Settle Down” video. The dolls in that video freaked me out, as did the emotionless dancing children, but Kimbra hasn’t strayed too far from that formula with her new video for her new song “Cameo Lover”.
Kimbra’s quirky jazz-influenced songs and lyrics are fresh to me though. The New Zealand based singer/songwriter has achieved acclaim overseas, and I hope she can make it big in the US. I really enjoy the freshness of her arrangements and lyrics. The dancing in these videos really also just makes me chuckle too, but it fits so perfectly doesn’t it?!
She’s also really reminiscent of Feist, who I love also. If you want more Kimbra, she’s also in Miami Horror’s “I Look To You” song/video, which I equally adore.
