With Kimbra‘s memorable voice firmly entrenched in our ear canals thanks to her feature on smash hit “Somebody That I Used To Know”, it’s about time we all started using the Kiwi singer’s name in a sentence that doesn’t also include Goyte in it. She takes a giant leap toward stardom in her own right today by premiering her first video aimed at the American market, for shimmery Vows track “Two Way Street”.
The colorful clip was lensed by veteran music video director Matthew Rolston (En Vogue‘s “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It)”, TLC‘s “Creep”, Garbage‘s “I Think I’m Paranoid”, etc.), and it’s an eye-popping dazzlefest that features feathers, fireworks and Kimbra’s ruby-red lips. (And nails. And shoes.)
In the spring, Kimbra told us the following about putting together her debut album:
“I tried to listen to as much music as possible when writing this record — the challenge was to bring these influences together in a way that felt distinct and truthful. I also watched a lot of Disney films while making this album and drew influence from old films.”
So does love really prove to be a two-way street for the 22-year-old songstress and the object of her affection? Watch her man chase her into the woods above, just as she jumps into her own reflection. Very Disney-esque, indeed.
