I have just been informed that Kerli‘s debut album, “Love Is Dead“, has been pushed up to a release date of July 8th.
That subtracts about one month from our time spent waiting to finally get our hands on a copy of the record that is sure to put Kerli on the map.
The music video for Kerli‘s debut single, “Walking On Air“, premiered online today, and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. It’s mystical, creepy, creative, and unique; exactly what we have come to expect from Kerli. You won’t be disappointed.
All the elements of the video make for a unique and unforgettable experience that only Kerli could bring to you with her warm, yet, haunting voice and self-written lyrics. Spinning rooms, a spooky doll, videography tactics that will remind you of some of the most frightening horror movies, and glimpses at the beauty of nature give this video an edge that will intimidate you with its strange beauty, but keep you watching out of intrigue.
Every now and then, a rising artist shows immense potential and proves to have something really special to offer. And whether it be a five octave range with impeccable tone, amazing lyrics, or the ability to produce their own music, it always makes me want to share what I feel about them. And, Island Def Jam’s, Kerli is one of those artists. She’s got the voice of a girl who wants to be heard, the writing chops of a girl who deserves to be heard, and a personality that will make people want to listen.
Born in Elva, Estonia, a tiny, then-Soviet occupied town of 5,000 people in the forest, Kerli grew up with a dream to escape from her surroundings. “Little creepy girl/Oh she loves to sing/She has a little gift-an amazing thing,” she declares on the autobiographical, world music beat of “Walking on Air” (Listen). “She will go and set the world on fire/Nobody ever thought she could do that.”
