Vanilla Ninja, a girlband extremely popular in their times, announced a return some time ago and informed they were not coming back in the original line-up, with Triinu Kivilaan rejoining Lenna Kuurmaa, Piret Järvis-Milder and Katrin Siska. But why wasn’t Maarja Kivi-Meriste, now living in Los Angeles, invited to join? Long distance can’t be the obstacle, taking into consideration that Katrin Siska, for example, lives in Cape Town.
To be absolutely honest, this new album is a surprise also to me, just like the fact that they are working with David Brandes again. – reveals Maarja Kivi in an interview with Sky.ee.
Shortly after Maarja left the band, Vanilla Ninja signed for the new record label, which years later became the doom for the whole band.
It’s funny, how the world runs. But time heals all wounds. Given the fact that I wasn’t involved this time, I wouldn’t expect any cooperation in the nearest future. – said Kivi.
