Kimbra – Settle Down (Penguin Prison Remix)

I got a press release last week telling me about the Penguin Prison Remix of Kimbra’s Settle Down. I overlooked it then but boy am I glad I went back for that one because this song is up there and I’m not just talking about the remix – here’s the video for the original…

I don’t know much about Kimbra except that she was recently featured on the Miami Horror track I Look To You which is also worth checking out if you haven’t already. If it’s not obvious enough this song is about acting out on those little girl dreams to get married, get out of the game, have kids and live the fantasy. The video portrays the sort of bittersweet reality that sometimes comes with living the dream, the weird thing about it is how they use teenage girls to portray it. I was never a little girl and getting married is behind the last thing on my mind at this point but I can always appreciate a good daydream. Great songs on both ends, enjoy.
