QT’s first single, “Hey QT,” sounds like SOPHIE except poppier, and it comes with a music video that intentionally rips-off Perfume’s “Spring of Life.”
The whole thing is also packaged as this stupid concept release about selling energy drinks or something. Coz, you know, Asian pop music is so commercial or whatever. (Omg so clever!!!)
So what, or who, is QT? She’s a sparkling future pop sensation – albeit one who is set to warp and stretch the notion of what a pop star actually is. It’s a drink, or more precisely a brand new Energy Elixir (“where organic and synthetic meet to stimulate an uplifting club sensation”). And it’s a song, a moment – “Hey QT” – which sees these two producers pushing their sound to its very extreme and creating a future anthem in the process. (Via Pitchfork)
“Hey QT” is actually a good song and I’d like it if it wasn’t for the corny J-pop homages and CF concept used to hook in the Pitchfork Faggots who can’t listen to something like this unless there’s a gimmick attached to make them feel smart. It’s like that time Marina and the Diamonds was desperate to slay the Hot 100 so she hired Dr. Luke and Stargate to produce her album and then created this ridiculous alter-ego so she could pretend that the whole thing was this meta exercise in selling out that commented on the manufactured nature of the music industry. Bitch please.
By the way, I went to QT’s Facebook page the other day and I saw that all these people who used to shit on me for getting into Asian pop music had liked her.
Lmao, I can’t.
