Watch This Now: Kimbra – “Cameo Lover”

“You turn from the skies, you dance with your demise…”

Holy freaking shit. Ladies and gentlemen, I’m not a man to make rash decisions, or overexaggerate too often. With that said, I just need to blurt this out: I think I may have seen the video of the year, the video of the decade and the most amazing thing I will see for the rest of my life. Ladies and gentlemen, please experience the bedazzling, sensational new video for expatriate Kiwi sensation Kimbra.

What can I say? Cameo Lover is gaymazing. Absolutely everything about it is gorgeous, bright and mesmerising. From Kimbra’s adorable red dress to her slew of tiny backing dancers, right up to the tambourines and the stunning choreography, I’ve fallen head over heels in love with this video. While her last video, Settle Down, was quite a dark affair, its sequel couldn’t be more fabulously bright if it tried. Ahh, confetti! Dancing! Multi-coloured suits! This is an absolute stunner, breataking in parts and just downright wonderful in others.

This is all just pure hyperbole to you, and you have every right to ignore everything I’ve written here. Except this: Watch this now, as soon as you possibly can. Kimbra is the future of Australasian pop.

(don’t forget to watch in HD!)

Major kudos is due to Harmer for putting this one together – his filming work is excellent, putting together a really beautiful montage that’s reflective of the song’s warmth, as well as its underlying fears and paranoia. It generates a myriad of emotions in what feels like a very short amount of time, and makes you want to explore them through repeated viewings almost instantly. Stunning stuff, and yet another contender for the video of the year – watch your back, Kimbra! […]
