Thought people might like this. She's from Nottingham and this is her first proper video (her first one features what look like the plastic bits from Kinder eggs). The song's really great I reckon and the chorus is HUGE.
The video is pleasingly naff - the bit with the human door knockers is brilliant - and she certainly looks the part
It feels like I've taken a time machine from our beloved 70s, to a time when records don't exist and music is taken intravenously instead.
I guess it is - I actually bought the Do Or Die EP last year after reading a little article on her and I like it very much.
I am more pleased because for once I appear to have been 'ahead of the curve' with a popstar...
Marvellous! She basically ticks all the boxes for me.
I was also surprised to discover this was the only post about here and it had zero responses. I Didn't know her and I bought Do or Die from iTunes, it's amazing as the rest of her songs.
The video can be watched here: http://vimeo.com/9780050
Definitely one to watch.
Something about "Forget Yourself" sounds really familiar, but it's been three days now and I still can't figure it out. The upside is that it means I've been listening to "Forget Yourself" over and over for the past three days.
Both songs on the homepage are magnificent!
All of which excites me.As a species I evolved from disco, house, hip-hop, italo, synth-funk and electro-soul.
Do or Die is really really good. The video...well, not so much. But the song is great!
I like her. There needs to be more female popstars with big curly blonde hair!
She's fun! There's a wealth of new female pop activity lately, with Florrie, Vanbot, Oh Land, Oh My, The Good Natured, Yasmin, Jessie And The Toy Boys, Neon Hitch, Queen Of Hearts, Charli XCX, Ilia Darlin, Ruby Goe, Parade, The Ultra Girls, Cosmic Girls, Jess Mills, Stooshe, Barbarellas... it shows no sign of stopping!
The bit about Diana Ross's hair made soda come out my nose. It was unpleasant but worth it.Originally Posted by Eel_Ssab
Good God this song is a mess. Some people were not born to be popstars.
The poster formerly known as UnderPressure.
i just looked at the front page -BIG wow!
Very impressed, and awaiting releases.
Great song, horrible video...
I preffer the one for Foget Yourself with the robo dancing.
I've just listened to Forget Yourself and Wiyoo. Isn't she wonderful? Helps that she looks a tiny bit like Supernature-era Alison Goldfrapp.
She reminds me very much of Alison too. Loving 'Forget Yourself' and certainly one to watch :)Originally Posted by Noir
I've been obsessing over Do Or Die over the course of the last week. I hope she's signed to a good label ASAP. There's something very 'real' about her, I just hope to God she isn't exposed as an X Factor auditionee. She's sort of perfect, isn't she? Her influences list 'Early Madonna', which speaks highly of Ronika.
I beg all of you to support her!
Fabulous. She's kicking the shit out of everybody right now.
When is this officially released through iTunes?
I believe it's out on Monday!Originally Posted by Kirkland
Thank goodness. I need to start bulking up my burgeoning Ronika playlist.Originally Posted by 3Xs
System Error is AMAZING.
She is my new favorite popstar. I love her voice, her style, and the productions are just incredible, it sounds much more modern than you would expect from another one of those stuck in the 80s kind of artists.
I am quoting this because I fully agree with everything you've written. I've even kicked Terry Hall out of my avatar space for Ronika. She's cool as fuck and totally 'gets' it.Originally Posted by DirtyPornStar
Thank you! I also agree that she really does remind one of Early Madonna. I think she got the 80s sound down better than artists like Little Boots, La Roux, etc. In some respects what she doing isn't too innovative, but she delivers with enough spunk, wit, and attitude, that it feels very fresh.Originally Posted by Kirkland
She produces her own tracks too? Amazing.
I just hope she doesn't fall into obscurity, that's the problem with a lot of amazing artists in the same position. Hopefully, she'll be able to establish a really strong niche. I do have lots of faith in her though, she sounds driven.
