Yunyu : Bluebeard


Very sorry to have missed the Yunyu’s Melbourne show at Revolver last week – a performance that included six musicians, various fairytale characters and a VJ called MR Goat. The show and this single are part of a multimedia project Yunyu has created in which classic fairytales are reinvented in what seems to be an operatic synth rock mode. This single reimagines Bluebeard with extraordinary intensity, as a ratcheted-up rendition of the Monkey Magic theme with squirrelling electric guitars, led by Yunyu’s fierce and theatrical vocal performance.
