Die Antwoord

It's ugly, its explicit and ... its damn catchy. South African Die Antwoord cant be denied, they deliver quality dressed in thrashy provocateur clothes, derived from the zef subculture they take their inspiration from a la Emimem.

Ukrainian pop: A.R.M.I.A - I'm Independent (Я Независимая)

A.R.M.I.A (Army) from Ukraine is a four member female group that has a number of songs under their belt, and with a visual style that is sometimes very stunning which balances sexuality with the strong or even burlesque as in "I'm Independent".

Mongolian pop: Anemone - Havriin Hair

I have written about Anemone from Mongolia earlier this year but missed "Havriin Hair" then. It is quite the charming piece, which makes me happy when I see it. They are styled in a way I would call "like normal girls". With that I mean that they arent homogenized, some are dressed "too old" and some "too young", some are nerdy and some sexy in persona. They are actually having personalities projected that feel believable, and their looks are somehow wholesome. One could make it simple for oneself and say they didnt know better, but as Mongolia is actually producing some quite well stylished videos I actually hope it is partly from choice.
