Kerli - Strange Boy

            Today’s recommendation comes all the way from Elva, Estonia, by this alt / punk rocker Kerli, I have already recommended one of her songs and in my book she is good enough to earn a second one, if you haven’t checked out my first recommendation by her don’t forget to click on the link at the bottom of the page.
            She grew up in a small town of 5000 people and shot to fame by winning a Baltic song competition, she then moved to Stockholm and then later on moved to US. On face value she looks like a Lady GaGa wannabe, but to her credit she has been maintaining this stage persona since even before Lady GaGa shot to fame and became a worldwide phenomenon.
The song I’m recommending, Strange Boy comes from her debut album Love Is Dead and is a wonderful Alt / Punk Rock song with just the right amount of bass to make it the perfect club track, the song is written from the point of view of an older woman seducing a young man, I love the guitar play in this song, it’s noticeably present throughout the song but never overpowering the vocals or trying to take over the song but above all I love Kerli’s swagger and attitude in this song and how well this has been conveyed through her vocal maneuvering, here’s the song

If you like this song you can get it from the link below
