What’s up, Kimbra?

2nd February 2012

I haven’t been able to get Kimbra’s “Settle Down” out of my head for days and days and days. (BOOM!Ba-boomBA!)

Kimbra is the woman featured on Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Love,” which — according to the comments — is everyone’s new favorite song.

Also, I’m meh on the song, but this video for “Cameo Lover” is trippy-twee fantastic. Have a look.

    She’s got a whole batch of videos that are all filmed “Live at Sing Sing” and I pretty much prefer them all to the “Official” videos. But I do love the visual wackness in all of these.

    Oh my.

    I would love to know what kind of things lurk in her mind, and what she’s thinking of while staring out into that middle distance.


    (Also, I wish I could have her hair.)

    I have been listening to Settle Down (and Somebody that I Used to Know) for weeks. It gets stuck in your head!
    those girls in the settle down video are adorable and also a little scary.

    my friend introduced me to Kimbra and Goyte and couple of weeks ago. I’ve been meaning to download but then I went and had a baby and promptly forgot! Thanks for the reminder…off to iTunes before I forget again, ha.

    I absolutely second the “need to watch” Walk off the Earth’s cover. AMAZING. Also, total girl-crush on Kimbra, and just a normal crush on Wally DeBacker. I purchased 2 Gotye albums shortly after being introduced to STIYTK. I think he sounds like Sting-meets-Peter-Gabriel and I LOVE.

    Hurrah! Glad someone else has the same ‘problem’ :-) Its a good problem to have. Can’t wait to see them both in Chicago in a few months!

    She rocks doesn’t she. We like to claim ownership of her as an Aussie, but she is technically a kiwi. I have a bit of a girl crush. I remember recommending “someone” to you a while ago but it is Aldo a song that is hard to listen to post breakup. I am glad you are enjoying it now. Wally is very talented isn’t her. There are some other great songs.
    Thanks for sharing these.

    Yay – so awesome to see these Antipodean artists getting such great recognition overseas!

    “Settle Down” is incredible, and I also love “Call Me”.

    Love this! Thank you for posting. So sad that their Portland show is already sold out, but I’m sure they will be back!
