BLITZKIDS mvt.' singer carries the name "Nomi". A homage to Klaus Nomi, who came from another world down to earth to entertain the children of the night? A toehold. An inspiration. Her face also dons the same white make-up, her posture is straight, her countenance proud. She could be his sister. Notice her eyes - pretty alien! And what about a little smile? Nope, we'll leave that to Lady What's-Her-Name. For Nomi, BLITZKIDS mvt. isn't about posing, it's about composure. And if Nomi fell from the same star as Klaus then BLITZKIDS mvt. is her cultural stomping ground. The home of the extra-terrestrials!
Both use stark contrasts, be it in fashion or music. Black and white. Like a beat, which pulses and pushes the music forwards with electrical surges. It’s not only about design. It’s not only about music. It’s about a battle between light and shadow. And that, that is the essence. The idea of melting pop music, performance and attitude has survived the eighties and is still to be found here. Some named them the “New Romantics”, a counter-movement to the punk scene. But whilst punk was out to destroy the system, the “New Romantics” aimed to re-shape it, to alter the shapes which already stood.
BLITZKIDS mvt. are out for the kill in 2011.
