Raukkamainen ex saa kyytiä Titan uudella Polttomerkki-sinkulla
Kuuntele Polttomerkki nyt: https://lnk.to/Polttomerkki
Hurmaava laulaja-lauluntekijä Titta julkaisee tänään perjantaina 3.11. uuden singlen Polttomerkki. Menevä pop-kappale kertoo rumasta erosta, jossa kyynelten ja sydänsurujen sijaan annetaan palaa oikein kirjaimellisesti, kun törkeästi käyttäytyneen exän auto päätyy kostossa ilmiliekkeihin.
“Polttomerkki on passiivis-aggressiivinen erolaulu, joka kuvailee erotilanteissa pintaan nousevia inhimillisiä tunteita. Koston himo, viha ja “mikään ei enää hetkauta” -fiilis ovat varmasti tuttuja kaikille jotka ovat joskus joutuneet yllättäen jätetyksi” Titta kuvailee uutta sinkkua. “Mutta vaikka olisit kuinka vihainen, niin litsari on aina väärin. Suutele sitä dorkaa niin jätät itsestäs makeen muiston. Ja sen jälkeen pidät tietysti erobileet!” Titta nauraa.
Polttomerkki-sinkun takaa löytyy tuttuun tapaan kovassa nosteessa oleva tuottaja Niko Lith. Kappaleen sanoituksesta vastaa Titta itse yhdessä muun työryhmän kanssa. Jonkin aikaa julkaisua odottaneen biisin on saattanut kuulla Titan keikoilla jo ennakkoon. Se on ehdottomasti kappale, joka sytyttää yleisön villeimpään tanssiin kerta toisensa jälkeen. “Joka kerta kun Polttomerkki soi jengi on välittömästi liekeissä. Se on niin upeeta nähdä, ja juurikin se syy miksi tätä työtä teen” Titta kertoo. Titan loppuvuoden suunnitelmat keskittyvät uusien biisien hiomiseen keikkailua unohtamatta.

It is now almost 40 years to the day since the Sex Pistols ‘Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols’ was released and to mark this significant anniversary USM/UMC are proud to revisit the out-of-print super deluxe edition of the album, which was originally issued in 2012.
Released in limited numbers at the time, this set is widely considered to be the definitive collection. This new, budget priced smaller-sized edition still boasts 3CDs which include the original studio album with 1977 B-sides, a disc of out-takes and one disc of 1977 live material. Additionally there is a DVD featuring 1977 footage of the band playing live from the infamous boat party held on the River Thames, London, the Winter Gardens, Penzance in Cornwall and the Happy House, Stockholm, Sweden.
Bringing it all together is a 48-page hardback book with narrative from music journalist Pat Gilbert plus rare photos from Bob Gruen, Barry Plummer, John Tiberi and Dave Wainwright.
Condensing the very essence of 1977, Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols is the only studio album by the group, released amidst a furore of controversy and outrage, following their being dropped by not one but two record labels, banned from gigging in most parts of the UK and swearing live on TV. From its iconic day-glo cover designed by Jamie Reid in collaboration with the Sex Pistols to its risqué title which led to an infamous court case which the band won, the album encapsulates a moment in time when the Sex Pistols set the world of music on fire.

Xtra Mile Recordings has signed Brand New Friend, an exhilarating indie pop brother-and-sister-fronted foursome from Castlerock, Northern Ireland, as announced exclusively by Stuart Baillie on BBC Radio Ulster's Across the Line.
The band – Taylor Johnson, vocals and guitar, Lauren Johnson, vocals and keyboard, Aaron Milligan, bass, and Luke Harris, drums – have been gathering steam since their first Irish tour in January wowing crowds in Dublin, Galway, Belfast and Derry/Londonderry. Since then, they fired up the BBC Introducing Stage at BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend in Hull; played at all the key Irish summer festivals including Indiependence and Electric Picnic; stole the show at Whelan's 'Ones To Watch' Festival in Dublin, and have sold out headline shows in Belfast. They've gained radio play from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Phil Taggart and BBC 6 Music by Tom Robinson Show as well as consistent, solid support from BBC Radio Ulster's Across the Line.
Their third single 'Hate It When You Have To Go' was catapulted into the world in September, a two minute thrust of fuzz guitars and po-going keyboard melodies. Watch the video here. This perfectly surmised the same frantic melancholy-dipped rush of previous singles 'I Was An Astronaut' and 'Your Friends Hate Me', as well as the accomplished pure pop sting throughout the five-track American Wives EP highlighted by the thrashing title track and the delightful 'I Love You, Goodbye'.
With hints of Ash and Los Campesinos! but with an even more infectious blend of joy and sad, Brand New Friend only need a few minutes of your time to have you joining in on handclaps and harmonies.
Taylor Johnson said about the signing:
“We’re incredibly excited to have signed to Xtra Mile, a label who right from the off shared our huge ambition and the passion that we’ve poured into everything up until now. More than anything we can’t wait to start working even harder for them! We’re well aware of their great reputation and want to repay them for the faith they’ve shown in us by delivering a brilliant album and getting out on the road. The hard work starts now and we can’t wait!”
Charlie Caplowe, from Xtra Mile Recordings says:
“The first time we heard Brand New Friend we knew we wanted to be involved. It was immediate. They are a great and exciting new young band with huge potential. Instead of pausing for thought and restricting their momentum, passion and enthusiasm, Xtra Mile wants to jump on board and be with them from the beginning onwards. Really excited to be working with them. Onwards into 2018 and a cracking debut album.”
The band will headline the legendary Duke Of York venue in Belfast on 19th January 2018 where the likes of Snow Patrol started their careers.
Tickets will be on sale from 9th November 2017 here:

After captivating the nation’s heart as the winner of Britain’s Got Talent 2017, multi-talented pianist, composer and producer, Tokio Myers releases his debut album, ‘Our Generation’, on November 17th on Syco Music.
Tokio Myers became a sensation when more than ten million people tuned in to watch him be crowned as the winner of the 12th series of Britain’s Got Talent. Since then the Londoner with Jamaican heritage has been writing and recording in the studio - fusing an array of musical influences that have shaped him as an artist, ranging from classical and cinematic to hip-hop, dance and 90s’ soul to create a totally unique new sound.
Tokio grew up in a deprived area of North London before being given a coveted piano scholarship at the Royal College of Music. A stint as a studio musician led to recording and touring with some of the biggest names in music including Amy Winehouse, The Police, Kanye West and Mr Hudson. Whilst being a relatively successful session musician, Tokio wanted to take the centre stage and so decided to enter BGT.
Tokio says: “With this album, I’ve really tried to bring classical and contemporary elements together. I’ve been hugely influenced by the 90s’ dance scene and particularly bands like Faithless and Massive Attack. There was a magic to that era that I wanted to capture and bring up to date for our times.”
Featuring a mix of original songs as well as innovative and inventive re-workings, the album is produced by Tokio Myers, Craigie Dodds and Guy Farley. Highlights include original compositions ‘Baltimore’ and ‘To Be Loved’, plus ‘Bloodstream’, a cover of Rudimental and Ed Sheeran’s hit, The Weeknd’s ‘Angel’ as well as ‘Children’ by the late Robert Miles.
Tokio adds: “This is so much more than just me making an album. I want to make music where you are taken on a journey, given this incredible experience – in other words, life!”
