Our track of the week comes courtesy of our new signing from Finland - Liana Forte. Now that she has unleashed her creativity there is no stopping her. As she says 'So now I've got the courage to unlock all those thousand locks and open myself to the world.' 

Me and My God is an unsettling listen both lyrically and musically. The backing doesn't allow you to settle as you listen to Liana's characteristic half sung, half whispered, menacing voice intone 'scratch my skin with a metal wire, tear my blood vessels out of my corpse'. 

Taylor Swift it is not. Dark, edgy and genuinely captivating is where we are at here.
