Indiana, the British singer, songwriter and social media provocateur, has announced and released a new EP titled ‘I Like Drinking’. The title track, an uplifting pop anthem dedicated to the art of boozing, is lifted from Indiana’s current album ‘Not Girlfriend Material’, which was released in August. The EP also includes a remix by fast-rising UK producer Adam Turner, an acoustic version of the song, and a brand new track ‘Wasted On You’
“I was drinking heavily at the time of writing it and didn’t give a fuck what people thought. I genuinely like drinking. In fact, I love drinking and that’s OK as far as I’m concerned. There are millions out there that feel the same. It’s a song for them.”
Indiana’s album ‘Not Girlfriend Material’, like it’s creator, is sultry, heartfelt, eclectic and sometimes controversial. The album was recorded at a time of significant change in Indiana’s life - the end of a relationship and a moment of self discovery.
"Entering the dating scene was a wake-up call. It never satisfied me…. guys are attracted to me, and want to f*ck me…. but in terms of continuing a relationship, they have issues with who I am, and why they were attracted to me in the first place."
And so came the life-changing revelation: “I’m not girlfriend material, but I’m OK with it.”
The revelation became a life statement and since then, has become a mantra. Indiana has created a clothing line called ‘Sex Leisure’, which sells a range of t-shirts bearing the slogan ‘Not Girlfriend Material’. In what has now become a signature look for the artist, an oversized t-shirt coupled with sports socks and trainers, she says it is “a cute exterior but with a bit of filth.”
Having previously released an acclaimed album via Sony, since leaving the label Indiana has become a social media provocateur in her own right - her instagram account @indianathegirl has thousands of followers who signed up for her sultry yet artistic selfies, tongue-in-cheek commentary and controversial moments.

About "Mercy" the frontman Marco Fresia says:-
"'Mercy' talks about God, about the merciful and charitable God who has condemned us to live a very happy and enchanting life on this Earth. It is a song that speaks of how we can not wait to see and relive the return of his favourite son to show him all our gratitude with nails, hammers and crosses".

Peste s the union of musicians taken from the Italian underground scene. A new punk/hardcore project with members of Tutti I Colori Del Buio, Haram, If I Die Today and Papazeta. Violence, negativity and hate against mankind are the keywords for describe their work. In their fast five pieces Peste deal with the brutal horror hidden inside of everyone soul, the human ability of destroying everything all around without no remorse remaining a slave of fear till death.

Ellie Goulding announces 'Streets Of London' charity concert at the Wembley SSE Arena on 20th December
Ellie Goulding has announced her annual charity concert to raise money for London homeless charity “Streets of London”. This year Goulding, who is an ambassador for the charity, will be joined by the likes of Dua Lipa, Bastille, Sigrid, Mabel, Grace Carter, Jax Jones, Dermot Kennedy and many more on stage at Wembley SSE Arena on 20th December. Pre-order tickets here: https://ellie.lnk.to/SOL
Since 2014, Global UN Ambassador Ellie Goulding's annual Christmas gig for Streets of London has raised more than £300,000, which has helped the charity to fund dozens of projects that are helping homeless people turn their lives around.
Speaking about the concert and her work with Streets of London, Ellie Goulding explains:-
“Every year the event we’ve done for Streets of London has been absolutely magical and moving, I know this year will be the greatest yet.”
Homelessness is a major problem in London today. On any given night in London, there are likely to be more than 1,000 people sleeping out on the streets (nearly treble the number there were in 2010) many more are in hostels or temporary accommodation and don't have a home to call their own. This can be incredibly damaging, and the average life expectancy of a homeless rough sleeper is just 47 years old.
Streets of London are currently funding twelve projects providing specialist support to get people off the streets and make a fresh start. Projects include a winter night shelter for vulnerable rough sleepers, a rehab hostel for people recovering from addictions, also several employment support projects, which help homeless people to look for jobs and then find and keep work.
People end up homeless for many different reasons and many need specialist help to get back on their feet and find a secure home. Those who have been homeless can require a lot of different types of support beyond help with securing housing, such as with mental health and addiction issues, understanding their rights, and with building their employability, skills and self-confidence.
With the right support, people who are homeless can turn their lives around. There are lots of great charities throughout London that work hard to provide these services; many of them are small and not very well-known and funding can be hard to secure.
The UK is one of the wealthiest countries in the world and London one of the wealthiest cities - no one should be spending night after night sleeping on the street. By working together we can make a real difference and help support those who are struggling to get off the streets for good.
The involvement of Ellie, and the many stars who have generously supported Streets of London by giving their time and talents, also helps raise awareness about homelessness, particularly among young people, engaging them in the issue and the need to work for change.
