Anime-manga-music video ‘Dorothy’ is the result of a collaboration between singer Yunyu, a Triple J Unearthed winner, New York Times #1 bestselling manga artist Queenie Chan & leading animators the Common ist.
Now with those 3 at the helm, that’s all the proof you need that you’re already onto a winner right? Especially when Yunyu describes her music as “The musical extract of Kate Bush, Isaac Asimov and Edgar Allan Poe – if they plonked their DNA in a particle accelerator and their DNA bonded on a subatomic level.“
Opening with JFK’s Rice University speech about the space program, ‘Dorothy’ comes to life in a multi-media music experience that emotionally propels you into the dire predicament of being lost in space.
“Yunyu is music anime for genuine pop futurists. Edgy, taut and clever” - Nui Te Koha, Sunday Herald Sun
Imagine Bjork-esque vocals, fused with Gorillaz-style imagery and rounded off with a song who’s melody gets stuck in your head for days and you’re getting close. But don’t take our word for it, experience ‘Dorothy’ below and do let us know what you think.
