Yunyu - Twisted Tales - Episode 1 - Dorothy
Thought I might as well post episode 1 too, even though I’m not sure if The Wonderful Wizard of Oz can be considered a fairy tale. Whatever, I love this girl’s music too much.
Dorothy is the first single from Twisted Tales. Based on the urban legends of the lost cosmonaut and wizard to OZ. Dorothy muses about her fate as she finds that her magic shoes are no longer working.
YUNYU - Twisted Tales - Episode 2 - Bluebeard
Bluebeard is the second single from Twisted Tales.
Yunyu’s version of this tale is a dark and chilling rendition of the exploits of real life Bluebeards who use religion to justify their sexual abuse of women and children. Offering a musical lifeline to her characters, Yunyu used SOS Morse code as a base for the track. Bluebeard is post-modern rock meeting with Kate Bush-esque vocals, and reaches a violent crescendo of electrifying guitar. Short, sharp verses repeat in rhythmic sequence while the band keeps up with the multiple changes in time signatures.
I love the way the video makes use of the drawing-on-sand imagery.
