Kimbra finds love in an enchanted forest in her new 'Two Way Street' video. Why can't this happen to us?
By now, Kimbra is basically a household name. But, just in case you've had mono or your didn't pay your cable bill, then we'll remind you that this MTV Push Alum rose to fame after her infectious collabo with Gotye, "Somebody That I Used To Know." And sure, Kimbra and Gotye's duet was gorgeous, but after hearing everywhere from the bank to our sleep, we're actually pretty excited to get our hands on some songs of Kimbra's own.

Kimbra's latest is called "Two Way Street" -- from her excellent Vows album -- and it's a jazzy pop record with a magical new video. Vaguely reminiscent of Katy Perry's "Wide Awake," Kimbra finds herself alone in an enchanted forest. Naturally, she's decked in her signature corset and ball gown skirt (luv dat), and as she stumbles alone through an empty forest, she finds herself in front of a magical red door. The door leads her everywhere, from a house, to an old elevator and eventually to the middle of a busy highway with cars whizzing by. Along the way, Kimbra meets a cute dude who eventually finds his way to that very same magical red door. Symbolism? After he opens it, Kimbra and dude piece rendezvous back in the enchanted forest where presumably, they will live happily ever after and have ridiculously chic nymph-fairy babies. That's all we could ever ask for, really.
