G' morning everyone and welcome to the 113th UKMIX Forum Song Contest!



Last month, Heppolo scored his first win ever, so congratulations to him! He also gave Finland its third win overall with this song:

Ritarit - Ritari

...which means we're back in Scandinavia for October. Finland is only the second European country to host the contest this year so far.
Let's discover Espoo!

RULES


01. This is a monthly contest, modeled after Eurovision. You need to have at least 10 posts to your credit to take part.
02. You can pick any country in the world.
03. The artist you choose has either to be a citizen of the country they'll represent or to have been born there. At least HALF of the people from your act must be from the country you choose.
04. Your song must be 10 years old at the most. For 2016, eligible entries must have been released after December 31st, 2005.
05. Eurovision entries are not allowed. Songs from concurrent Eurovision heats are not allowed either.
06. The song cannot have been a UK/US Top 40 hit, as it would give it an unfair advantage.
07. The song can be a remix.
08. The song cannot be a cover version.
09. If your song features a sample, please state it early enough, so the other contestants can decide whether it is acceptable or not by poll.
10. You cannot vote for your own country.
11. Discussion about one's favourites during the contest is NOT ALLOWED, as it has the potential to influence the voting.
12. PLEASE try and choose a song not everyone would know, the point is to discover new artists.
13. If a song becomes or is found to be ineligible at any time before the voting is over, it will be disqualified.
14. Make sure you understand all the rules before you take part. You will need to devote about 2 hours of your time to this game to listen to all the entries at least once. Do a little research on your entry before you present it, be sure that it doesn't violate any rules, and check here to see if it has taken part before.

Female-driven indie pop/post-punk revival gem, leans mostly on the loud-quiet-loud structure. Sounds a bit Brody Dalle/The Distillers-ish.

Luxury Death
Manchester, UK

Luxury Death is the brainchild of boyfriend/girlfriend duo Ben Thompson and Meg Williams. The project started as "something else to do in the bedroom together" and shortly blossomed into a fully conscious band churning out hauntingly bittersweet lo-fi indie rock songs influenced by knowing that one day you are going to die.
