Anita Maj "Playtime" (single) Released November 28th 2011 (Lil Minx Recordings)

Free Launch Party Show on Friday 25th November

Anita Maj is a singer with an edge. She has been developing her songwriting talents since her early teens. Her songs are inspired by early legends like Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, iconic women in rock such as PJ Harvey and Debbie Harry, as well as modern influences including Kings of Leon, The Killers, Muse and 30 Seconds to Mars.

She arrived in London from Yorkshire where she honed her skills busking on the London Underground. As luck would have it, it was here that her instant pop songs got her noticed by Kanye West collaborator, Malik Yusuf no less. Since then Anita has only looked forward.

Feisty power pop likened to a 21st century punk-fused Bangles/Suzi Quatro/Pink - Anita plays every show like a major festival headline. Her charisma is winning serious attention on both sides of the Atlantic. Anita regularly plays at key London music venues and is a growing attraction on the national festival circuit. This summer also included supports with Art Brut and The View and in October she played live on air for BBC Leeds, Alan Raw Introducing.

She is one of the newer wave of Brit newcomers with a swelling US following, is getting radio play across America and has toured five times in two years. She has already played (rock n roll household names) like Arlene's Grocery (at CMJ), The Viper Room, Whiskey a Gogo, New Orleans's House of Blues and SXSW.

"Playtime" builds on well received previous release "Out of Control" and previews her debut album, 'Truth Or Dare', produced by Dan Swift (Kasabian, Biffy Clyro, Snow Patrol).

Power pop anthem filled, it is already sounding like a greatest hit collection and is due for release in Spring 2012 (Lil Minx Records).

Another track from her forthcoming album, 'Undercover' is confirmed for the latest edition of computer game Rock Band in November 2011, where Anita joins such luminaries as Metallica, Journey, Miley Cyrus and Spinal Tap. She is now ready to be discovered at home.

Anita Maj is no styled-for-tv-ads twee girly nonsense of corporate making, but a pro-active, independent, force of female positivity. A public, (grrrrrl powered) announcement, with guitars!
