Crime is an exciting new queer experimental goth-pop duo from Berlin, consisting of Mika Risiko of Sissters and Scream Club member Sarah Adorable, who started the project last summer. The duo has reached out to the public for the first in September with the beautiful video to their first single “This Party Blows”, followed by an extensive tour through Germany and the Czech Republic in November and December and a couple of additional gigs in Berlin in the last few months. Their latest song “Other Kids Live”, another dark, synth-heavy track, was released a few days ago on Soundcloud and we recommend giving it a listen.
As a contribution to our PICK 5 series Mika and Sarah have send us a commented list of their five favorite videos – an entertaining insight on their influences and interests. We’re especially happy about the video by Los Angeles based artist Jeepneys, who we just recently have stumbled upon, but haven’t managed to feature on the blog yet. For more contributions to our PICK 5 series by artists such as Cakes Da Killa, Alexis Blair Penney or Kool Thing please check out the section’s archive.
1. Harmony Korine – “Act da Fool”
“This theme of us against the world is touching, and the video is filmed in this slow dreamy way that mimics how she describes the pace of their everyday life in a small town. It has this feeling of going nowhere but still living for today and looking to the future. Not to mention these girls are total hot babes. It’s easy to relate to the need of going wild due to stagnation and the inability of coping with the outside world.”
