[REVIEW] Natalia Kills Performs at Cherrytree London


The first time I saw Natalia Kills perform was when she opened for Robyn back in the fall of 2010. Since then, the British singer has traveled all over the U.S and Europe to perform songs from her debut LP "Perfectionist." Germany and Poland especially have fallen deeply in love with the "dark pop" of Natalia Kills. She has performed at major TV shows, radio stations and she was a special guest at Life Ball 2011 last month.

On Monday evening, she was back in the U.K. to perform at the Cherrytree London concert at King's College. What I truly appreciate about Natalia's performance is that she brings an intensity to her performance that is truly compelling. She sings, she dances and this perfectionist doesn't want to skip a single beat to make sure her audience captures every detail of the message she wants to convey. There's no escaping Natalia Kills.

Kills opened her show with a very special performance of "Free" with Cherrytree Records chief Martin "Cherry Cherry Boom Boom" Kierszenbaum on the keys for a stunningly beautiful, stripped down version of the song that has been selected as her new single.

Kills also performed her hit "Mirrors" and her current single "Wonderland," a track the neatly outlines Natalia's pop motto. She sings, "I don't believe in fairytales, but I believe in you and me." It clearly shows that her dark pop comes with a silver lining of hope.

Look out for the release of "Free" (featuring Will.I.Am) in the U.S. on June 28 that will surely help to further push the moment for the singer. Her debut album "Perfectionist" will be available in the U.S. this upcoming August.
