I'm surprised there isn't a thread on them already. They are a hip hop band hailing from South Africa and their singer, Yolandi Visser happens to be one of my personal style icons.

Honestly, I don't understand them. Maybe you could explain the ninja alter-ego thing?

they have really been blowing up lately. They are the new stars of the T by Alexander Wang Spring campaign! They were also front row at his show.

I can't decide what to think of this band. Some elements of cultural appropriation are disturbing to me: they border on racist imo (minstrelsy!? Come on!). But I like some of their music. I am just not sure their use of "irony" always translates to the broader public, which means things can be taken too literally. She does have cool hair.

Is this a case of style over substance? Or not? I am still on the fence...

I recently started listening to them. Their music is so catchy. And I do love Yolandi's style.
