Correctly spelled as 't.A.T.u.' since they had to change their name because another act also had that name.
The pricise type of music they make is rather unclassifiable to me, drawing influences from genres like industrial rock, ambient and russian trance, combining that with sometimes soothing other times chaotic epic high female vocals. Using a wide range of instrumentsamples while sometimes relying on simple verse/chorus/verse/chorus structures also sometimes using immensely complex hard to crasp chaotic and outbursting epic structures.
t.A.T.u.'s reputation is that of 'lesbians', although they recently said that was not true. The question remains wether or not it was a commercial invention or a way to make same sex couples more accepted. As well: t.A.T.u. also messaged to make other somewhat sexually controversial activities seen as normal such as masturbation.
All t.A.T.u.'s English work is 4/4 messured. Melodies may differ from some simple 2 messure leads to ambient leads that can be 32 messures changing chord every 2 messures and chaotic industrial trance leads from 8-16 messures. The emotions differ from epic drama to semipsychological. The atmospheres are kept at a rather light level. The vocals are soothing or epicly chaotic. Respectively taking turns in singing from the two lead vocallists or making excellent usage from the fact that there are two lead vocallists singing lines in rapid succession and starting to sing before the other stopped singing. Harmonic complexity is mediocre and the heaviness of the melodies could be seen as easily accessible.
Me: I listen to tatu(t.A.T.u.) yes. It's the the best music there is but for popmusic the standard is unusually high and the style is unclassifiable, in a sense, they are the avant-garde of pop music.
Someone who listens to Ambient Black Metal and Dark Noise: Shut up, you don't know anything about music.
