After Hours

Taisia Povaliy. Serdenko (Little heart)

Ukrainian pop week continues. Once again, this video looks like it's a parody of something American, but no, these people are earnest in their efforts. I've never heard of this person before. All I know is that this song is in Ukrainian and its downtempo R&B stylings leave much to be desired. Since my Ukrainian is pretty shaky (I have to translate it in my head into Russian and then into English), so "Little heart" may not even be the title. The Russian for "heart" is serdtse and the diminutive is serdechko. That's mighty close to serdenko, so I'm going with that. Plus, they have this heart graphic at the beginning of the video. I'm pretty sure that's what it means. But Ukrainians are a notoriously contrary people. Serdenko could really mean "blood worm" and this might just be part of an elaborate scheme to piss off Russians.
