Estonian pop princess Kerli has some kind of cult
following, I’m sure of it.
I’ve seen her name drift in and out of the pop music blogosphere recently but I’ve never investigated until now. Well, child. Consider the sensories to be fried because this icy Europop track – and accompanying white tribal video – is spellbinding as hell.
Here are three highlights in Kerli‘s ‘Army of Love’ promo:
1) Harajuku Ella Hooper Version Blanche.
I can’t even. This rave/cosplay perfection is too much for us mere mortals to handle.
2) The teddy mask.
One has developed a strange attraction towards this fatally cute piece and the other white gothic accessories Kerli‘s army is rocking.
3) Platforms were never gone.
Don’t even try to pin this as some kind of comeback, we all know platforms were never gone. I’m marveling at this masterpiece trying to find an Aussie popstar capable of this kind of sartorial brilliance and seriously, no one comes to mind. Except Amanda Grafanakis.
I see ya’ll nodding now.
Kerli‘s forthcoming “bubble Goth” album (her words) is expected to be out sometime this year. Her track ‘Tea Party’ was released as a single from Almost Alice, a compilation of choons inspired by Tim Burton‘s big screen remake of Alice In Wonderland.
