Kiss of Life

by Syd Briscoe

Kylie Minogue & Jessie Ware: “Kiss of Life” - 3 mins 46s

Long beloved by the LGBT community, Kylie Minogue returns with another potential camp classic with her latest track. 'Kiss of Life' is a two-hander with English singer-songwriter-foodie Jessie Ware, and the accompanying promo sees the pair take a swanky restaurant by storm.

Director Sophie Muller shows an innate understanding of her audience here, as every design element and shot hearkens to the storied tradition of camp music videos. From the vintage decor to soft-focus grade, there's not a hair out of place on performers or cast alike.

Heightened performances from the pop stars add to the drama and delight of the piece, particularly when Minogue swoons to the floor in perfectly-coiffed repose. This is tons of fun to watch, and feels like it was probably a laugh to make too.
