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…

    Kerli is my spirit animal. That’s why my hair is always curly.

    Kerli is such brightly colored twistedness wrapped in bubbles. I’m twisted, I wear bright colors and bubbles are awesome.

    kerli’s music is so inspirational and quite frankly an incredibly interesting person. I mean i didn’t even know Estonia was a place until she did press in 2008 promoting Love is Dead. I put on my busted shangela-esque hooker moonchild realness and bused my way to san francisco in 2011 to see her perform at pride. I also totally hunted for her first album when it came out at local best buys which took forever. Thanks for hopefully reading this and considering me =)

    Kerli speaks to the inner candy kid in all of us, and I love her for that. Plus, when you make tracks as brain-bleedingly brilliant as ‘Zero Gravity’ and ‘Walking on Air’, of course I’m going to be a huge fan.

    Kerli bridged two disparate interests for me. She was pop, to be sure, but there was darkness and a bit of the goth lolita fashion that I was obsessed with in high school. And then there was the Walking On Air video. I was floored. The visuals, the narrative, the fashion, all with this wicked music box/lullaby beat that really excited me. Since then, I’ve eagerly devoured anything she comes out with, one song at a time. The Utopia EP is like a feast to my ears after being in the barren desert for weeks on end.

    I love her because she’s so different from the other pop musicians, both in her sound and artistic sensibilities!

    I’m literally going to sound like some cheesy (or even more than cheesy… like to the point that all of the cheese has gathered up into a cheese army… “building an army, an army of cheese” wait those aren’t the lyrics) [yes... I'm that bad] {don’t judge me} fan that’s just babbling on about my life story and how much Kerli means to me, but it’s all in good truth… so who cares?! I sure don’t. ANYWAY, I love Kerli because she’s opened my eyes to the world around me and taught me to stop and smell the roses once in a while… life is a journey and it has it’s ups and downs, but we shouldn’t spend our time worrying about the past or the future, we should be enjoying what we have right “Here and Now” because we are the “Lucky Ones”! (clever wordplay, huh?). When I listen to her music I feel like I’ve been taken to another place in the world filled with nothing but peace and tranquility. Her level of talent is just absolutely through the roof incredible and every single lyric she’s ever written always finds a way to touch my heart. So, I guess you could say I don’t just “love” Kerli… because it’s more than that. I feel a connection to her that’s really rare. A love that’s “more than chemical”! x – Christian

    Kerli came around at a very dark time in my life, and i could connect with every song on her first album. Now that times have changed and so have I, I am not dark anymore and neither is she. This new EP is perfecttion and I love it. I love Kerli because no matter what she has remained original and has feeling and meaning in her lyrics and voice. <3

  • Thekrystalfox

    I absolutely love kerli. her music makes me want to move! My friends and I love to listen to her. This EP is amazing and I love every single one of her songs. It would be great to add it to my collection.

  • Luis

    I love Kerli because “Tea Party” basically plays on repeat during the tea parties I have with the girl I nanny.

  • Kaykay

    Kerli is amazing and she has an amazing style and she’s come from a really dark place but still sees the light within it all. She is Beautiful in every way possible, her songs are so passionate and every one has a lot of meaning in it, she opens her heart to everyone.

    I have really liked Kerli since she started throwing shade to Lady Gaga during her hay day! I thought to myself, any girl that is throwing shade to Lady Gaga during a time when every one liked her has to have some serious balls and she did. I checked out her songs Walking on Air and immediately loved her edgy and creepy style. I checked out her album and loved her song CREEPSHOW (SIDE NOTE: Since the song mentioned Estonia I looked it up, when I took an EASTERN EUROPEAN class my professor mentioned she was Estonian and assumed no one knew where that was, I raised my hand and said I did from that point on we connected and I feel like it helped me get an A in the class, basically KERLI HELPED ME PASS MY CLASS, Queen) From then on I followed her and loved everything from Tea Party to the Lucky Ones. Drove down for 3 hours to see her perform at a gay club called Tiger Heat in LA last month! Right now I don’t have the money to be spending it on fun stuff so this would be an awesome gift to get while I study for finals and save my money for coffee. This is why I think I deserve to win…plus I love your Legentina posts :)

    I love Kerli because she has always remained original and her voice is just beautiful She also has a certain darkness to her, even in her new music that I can and always have related to, and she taught me that no matter how much you try to fit in and hide your darkness, it will always be underlying in your life. Kerli’s Love Is Dead album came out at a very dark time in my life, and its funny because now that she is somewhat more positive, I am too. Or maybe thats just growing up.

  • ptsilver

    Because the video for Zero Gravity very good and the song is fantastic. I like her style and she seems more interesting to me than the tranny gagme.

    Kerli has helped me in so many ways. She is the reason I am who I am today. She’s helped me see myself in a positive light, and made me believe that I CAN follow my dreams and succeed. She helped me change from a judgemental, grumpy person to a very kind and open person. I’ve changed my beliefs just because she taught me that it’s okay not to follow the norm. It’s okay to be different and be proud. She also inspires my own music and art with her amazingly unique talent. I adore how down to earth and real she is, and how she truly DOES care for her fans. I’ve spoken to her many times and I am always still blown away at just how real she is. I will always be a moonchild for life, no matter what she chooses to do musically or career wise, I will always be thankful that she showed me that the world is wonderful <3

    I love Kerli because she has one of the most unique voices of any modern day pop singer. Her whole genre is truly indescribable–while she delivers heavy, elaborate electronic pieces she’s also crafting the most touching of ballads at the same time (“Love Me or Leave Me” was incredible from the first time I heard it). Bubblegoth is truly her brand and she has stayed true to that apart from any other artist–not only is it in her music but it’s how she lives. Kerli is the ideal musician because she stays true to who she is without exception. I can’t wait to hear more from her after Utopia and well-beyond–I’m sure we’ve only begun to see what she’s capable of.
