Moonchildren, the time is now: Let us join hands, invoke the spirits, frolick with faeries and celebrate the release of Queen Kerli‘s Utopia!
I’ve been a devoted Kerli Fry for some time now, ever since the release of her half-charming, half-terrying Love Is Dead in 2008. But the love truly intensified when I saw the Estonian pop princess raving her way through the opening of The Saturdays‘ US showcase a few months ago, followed by a hearts-and-rainbows dance explosion at XL Lounge later that night. (Also, she co-wrote Demi‘s “Skyscraper.” I mean…hello!)
This week, Kerlegend releases Utopia in the US, a 6-track sweat-inducing set features the dizzyingly rave-y “Can’t Control The Kids” and “The Lucky Ones,” which managed to hit #1 on the US Billboard Dance charts not too long ago. The EP also includes her heart-wrenching piano ballad “Love Me Or Leave Me,” as well as her sweetly-sung devotional “Sugar.”
It’s all about living in the now, lifting up your hearts and stomping it out in 12-inch platform glittery space cadet shoes and rainbow extensions. She’s sort of like Ke$ha, sans vomit or fashionable Illuminati references.
And so, to celebrate the release…
