I hope you’re sitting down, because this video from Melbourne lady of soul Kimbra is sure to make you weak at the knees. It’s got everything you could want in a music video: bouncy curls, playful pyrotechnics, and tweens in make-up, nightdresses and unhealthy relationships. Not to mention the track itself, which is a delicious taste of what’s to come on her upcoming debut album ‘Vows’.
Fusing influences from artists as broad and varied as Outkast, Burt Bacharach and Bjork, Settle Down features an infectious combination of handclaps and “a ballooning bassline married to an escapist lyrics about domesticity,” says Kimbra.
The video was directed by Guy Franklin, a young gun representing fresh music video collective Mammal Films. “How fresh are they?” we hear you asking. They’re so ripe you can’t even find them on the interweb! Yet.
