As a general rule I question why every artist has a name for their fanbase. And, yet for some no matter how small, it just makes sense. It's a community.
For Kerli it just makes sense that she has her moon babies. I can just sense this protectiveness she has over her fans. Her moon children may be small in number, but their number doesn't matter. Being in love with Kerli is in the same as being in a wonderful cult.
Kerli is everyone's favorite Estonian. A country in the Baltic part of Europe right by Latvia and Lithunia and more noticeably, Russia. She's a unique beauty and has embraced prosthetic attachments on her face for musical appearances. Colored hair and of course glitter.
Although, she remains the only Estonian artist to chart on the albums chart with Love Is Dead and Utopia at 126 and 196 respectively. The album sales for both were commercial disappointments. Part of the reason she split ways with her record label, Island.
She took a five year gap between Love Is Dead and Utopia. Releasing two electronic buzz tracks “Army of Love” and “Zero Gravity” as well as recording “Tea Party” for the Almost Alice soundtrack. Continuing to spread her own brand of pop excellence.
Some Moon Babies called her a “sell out” for making more electronic music. A change in style hardly makes someone a sell out. Especially with a record label that failed to push this song onto the radio. Kerli could have been the breakout star of 2013.
In fact Utopia was released as an EP when originally it was intended to be a full studio release. They cut six songs from it, added a remix, and called it a day. They fucked her over.
Since, then Kerli's being featured on some experimental electronica from Seven Lions and Benny Benassi. She's cowritten some of my recently favorite songs. The highlight of the Pentatonix EP Vol. 3 “See Through” features Kerli as a contributor. And, Hilary Duff's Breathe In. Breathe Out features the ecstatic track “Confetti” that was originally a Kerli demo.
Right now she's signed to Ultra records. Working on a music video for her second album. Writing and producing all of her songs in the forests of Estonia. And, if you think I'm kidding, then you don't know Kerli.
