Can’t get enough Gaga? Or even her strange alter ego, Jo Calderone? Then we might just have something that will tide you over until Born This Way: The Extended B-Side Dance Club Remixes/Duets with Dead Frank Sinatra hits shelves next week.
Her name is Natalia Kills. And she’s the perfect musical accompaniment to Our Lady of Meat Dresses, but with her own unique spin. The two together create the pop equivalent of a well-executed two-course meal from one of America’s greatest chefs. They go together like peanut butter and chocolate. Bottoms and Tops. Ramma lamma lamma ka dinga da dinga dong.
Hailed as the crown princess of Dark Pop, her music is melodically addictive with just enough edge. Her debut album, “Perfectionist,” is filled with plenty of memorable tunes, like Wonderland, Acid Annie and her first single with will.i.am, Free, which has a great video about the pleasures of materialism. (Ah, money. We remember you well.)
After barely two weeks of release, “Perfectionist” has already climbed to #134 on Billboard’s Top 200, #6 on Billboard’s dance/electronic albums and #1 on the charting service’s Heatseekers Albums, which means she could soon be a household name.
And if she doesn’t become America’s new pop sweetheart, don’t say we didn’t warn you. Her name is Natalia Kills and singers have a tendency to live up to their names. Frankie did indeed go to Hollywood. Queen was led by a big ol’ homo. And Usher once worked in a movie theater.
So just to be safe, you may want to buy Natalia Kills’ album. Just for a little peace of mind.
