Simply on My Lips
Kimbra – 2007
Kimbra's second single, the jazz inflected 'Simply on my Lips', was recorded when the future pop star was 16 and still at school. The starkly simple black and white video was directed and animated by Joel Kefali (later of the awarding winning Special Problems production team). It placed Kimbra with her guitar in the corner of a room whose walls became a canvas for Kefali's line drawings — and won the Best Breakthrough category at the 2007 Juice TV awards. Within months, Kimbra had signed an international management contract and relocated to Melbourne.
