iamamiwhoami - "; john" (music video, 2011)


Right around the time of its [her] Winter 2009 inception, viral muse "iamamiwhoami" was Speculated to be the new alter-ego of Popular songstresses like Christina Aguilera, Lady GaGa, and Lykke Li. When the artist responsible for the handful of mysteriously creepy videos was revealed to be none of the above... But in fact Swedish singer-songwriter Jonna Lee and musician/producer Claes Björklund, the Internet went a frenzy.
Following the release(s) of a string of numerically coded "[animal] teaser clips," a set of legit [lettered] songs was slowly unleashed. Throughout the course of 2010, "b," "o," "u," "u-1," "n," "t," "u-1," and "y" were subsequently released as Amazon/iTunes singles. Internet-savvy fans should be able to locate an unofficial EP compilation of the tracks and their companion remixes - "To Whom It May Concern."
