The whole Kimbra situation is so funny. She spent so long as a struggling indie-pop songstress releasing flawless songs like “Cameo Lover” and “Settle Down” that nobody seemed to give a fuck about, then dropped one of the most critically-acclaimed pop albums of last year, but it took until she was No. 1 on the Hot 100 with Gotye until anybody would even give her the time of day.
Fuck y’all, but better late than never, right?
With all the interest in her now, Kimbra is still plugging Vows, releasing a music video for the album’s fourth single “Two Way Street” late last week.
This wouldn’t have been my top pick for next single, but the music video has completely changed my mind. Kimbra looks beyond beautiful in the fantasy-themed visual, which is a bit like a non-horrible version of Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake” clip that’s been made for people over the age of 8.
