03.09.2005 Tatu's new violent style

Do you remember the Russian girls in Tatu? Now they're in action again with the new song All about us And this is what Aftonbladet's Markus Larsson thinks about the song. - It's not a big difference between this song compared to the other singles they've released. Tatu seems to have found a formula that they're going to use for a long time ahead. It is a very good and hot and unusual video. It won't be sending on the best time on the music channels, it is way too controversial for that, at least the version that I’ve watched. - One of the members of Tatu executes a man that tires to hit and rape her. The fascinating thing with Tatu is that you can't really know what's true and false with the band and there are way too many rumours about their sexuality. I think that is the whole point with Tatu It is what makes it a true phenomenon, there's something provoking with these lolita's.

Thank you to Erla! :)

Hm, hardly anyone from the media seems to really get what the video is about - most reviews remain very much at the surface, seeing the violence and the killing and nothing else. Maybe it was to be expected, but one wishes some media people would just try to delve a little deeper for the meaning of it all. I shudder to think what they will make of Lyudi Invalidy... Half Frown

Oh that is so crap. Indifferent On the other hand, what can you expect from Sweden's biggest tabloid (who by the way had a very interesting guide on Paris Hilton the other day Rolleyes )? This was a very shallow commentary on the video, and I hope people with look with their own eyes instead of Markus Larsson's. :squint:



:edit: I found the Entertainment news recording where this was mentioned. This is my translation:

Quote:
Jenny Ågren: "Do you remember the Russian girls in Tatu? Their new song is called All about us, and this is what Aftonbladet’s Markus Larsson thinks about the song:"
Markus Larsson: “There is no big difference between this song, compared to the other singles they have released. Tatu seem to have found a formula which they’ll use for a long time onwards. This is a very well done, good looking and unusual video. It won’t be displayed on best show time on the music channels, it’s way too controversial for that, at least the version I have seen. Among other things, one of the members of Tatu executes a man who tries to beat and rape her. The fascinating thing about Tatu is that you can never know what is true and false about the band, there are far too many rumours about their sexuality. I think that’s the point about Tatu; that is what makes them a true phenomenon. There is something provoking about those lolitas.”

Now I must say, that when I heard him speaking, he sounds much more positive to the whole thing. For instance, when he says "Tatu seem to have found a formula" he seems to think it's a successful formula. Also, about the video being too controversial, that is of course by the music channels' measures. All in all, he seems to like the phenomenon that is Tatu.

Here are a review of All About Us from Expressen.

Quote:
Single of the week
3 of 5 wasps

Tatu
All About Us
Universal

Extremly unexpected comeback for all those who have been following the Russians quarrels and split-ups in the medias. But back they are, and sound the same, they do. With goth-verses and a hit chorus that feels like good old Abba-Frida.


I've got a review from Aftonbladet too but it's some words in it that I can't translate. If someone wants it just PM me.
They called it "noisy Lilja 4-ever pop" by the way.

Thanks for pointing out this Expressen review and for translating it, Lilja. :thumbsup:

Now I don't care too much about reviews, either good or bad, but I think Expressen's descriptions of t.A.T.u.'s new music are funny and actually quite accurate. "Noisy Lilja 4-ever pop", "goth-verses and a hit chorus that feels like good old Abba-Frida": especially when I listen to All About Us I have to admit I cannot escape a kind of 'Abba on steroids' feel. Grin Oh well, there are a whole lot of worse comparisons imaginable. Smile

Tatu was in one of the "subway newspapers", metro. According to this, only Lena was in Stockholm.



Quote:
The scandal duo has grown up
Tatu rejects their old image for a more mature style on the new record
THE RUSSIAN notorious duo Tatu is back with a new record.
The earlier picture of Lena Katina and Julia Vokova as a lesbian couple is nothing they want to acknowledge today.
“We never claimed to be lesbians”, Lena Katina says.
Lena Katina is in Stockholm to market the new record “Dangerous and moving”.
Since Eurovision in Riga 2003 the duo has been taking it easy. Among other things Julia Vokova has got a baby. Moreover have they split up with former manager Ivan Sjapovalov, the man who was behind the idea of manufacturing them as lesbians.
On the new record they’ve got help from, among others, one half of Eurythmics, Dave Stewart, Sting and Richard Carpenter from the 70’s band Carpenters.
But what would Tatu be without controversy? The video for the first single “All about us” has received attention due to the content, sexual molestation and murder. But they defend the video.
“Every day men kill women. It’s better to show reality”, says Lena Katina.

I don't think that's correct. According to tatu.ru, Yulia was there as well. See the "A Day in Stockholm" entry in the photo gallery: http://www.tatu.ru/photo.html?id=50

Same ship there in the background as in the photo from the Metro article:

There are Dangerous and Moving commercials on TV4! Thumb

Well, Tatu entered the Swedish single charts week 39 at #35. They're now a #6!



Fanbay competition - win D&M!
I found some kind of official Swedish Universal Tatu site as a part of fanbay.se *confused* You can hear parts of all the new songs, watch AAU video + pictures and enter a competition to win the latest album.
