Kerli has first appeared on the scene with her amazing debut album 2008’s “Love Is Dead”. Her music blew me away. It’s so haunting and deeply emotional. Kerli’s style back then was a Tim Burton fantasy. Lolita Goth was her style. She wore a lot of corsets, baby doll dresses and fascinators. Kerli has had a lot of struggles to become mainstream; especially since she has on many occasions accused Lady Gaga of stealing her look and style ( I couldn’t agree more). But things are looking up for the pretty Estonian singer. She still remains with Island Def Jam, has recorded the song “Tea Party” for Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland” and “BulletProof” for “Punisher:War Zone” movie. Her 2011 “Army of Love” song debuted at number 1 on The Billboards Hot Dance Club Hits. She is now recording her new album which won’t be as dark and gothic as “Love is Dead’ and has even changed her style to what she calls “Bubble Goth”; which is like if you combined a club kid with Japanese Kawaii. I think 2012 will be Kerli’s year. Us Moonchildren are rooting for her!!
