Joanna Wang – Coins

Thanks to Amy’s unwavering guidance, I’ve fallen head over heels in love with Joanna Wang. Her latest video for song Coins [銅板] would be a good indication of why. She’s playful, cute, and her voice is just so rich and full of so much fun. Her video game inspired album Galaxy Crisis: The Strangest Midnight Broadcast is probably the most interesting (certainly the funnest) thing to come out of the first part of 2013. If this MV is indicative of the type of music we’re going to see form Ms. Wang in the future, sign me up… twice!

Directed by Yoshaw, the same mad genius that directed her video for You and Me [MV], we now have Joanna leading a hoard of sock puppets as her background dancers (read: evil dancing minions). The bright pastel colors and Joanna’s close-cropped bright blond mini-bob hairdo is pretty much all you need to know to understand why it was so easy for me to fall in love with her. I can’t wait to see more of her in the future!


As unexpected as my path was to loving all things weird, more unexpected is my ability to get attention for writing about the stuff.

      @amy, I like how she sounds both cute and asshole-ish (lyrics-wise) at the same tme.

        @Rodrigo, she does, doesn’t she? It’s a capitalist throwback lol. Your girlfriend is dying? Don’t worry, I’ll buy you out.

          @amy, Hahaha, that’s why I liked this song. I ended up listening to this by accident assuming this was the video you recommended to Mirella and Camiele… but then, I was wrong about it. Still, an accidental listen that was worth it. :)
