Hot Video Alert: Christian TV - When She Turns 18
"Who the f**k is Christian TV?" A very good question and a clever SUBJECT LINE for a press release. Of course I'm going to investigate. Now...while I may be asking this question a few months too late, there's no time like the present, right?
Christian TV (AKA Christian Berishaj) is part of a band signed by Atlantic Records, called Love Arcade. The five-member band got it's start in Michigan and ultimately signed to Atlantic, whereunder they released their debut album in the summer of 2006. While songs surfaced from the band's sophomore effort, an album was never released. Now...Mr. Christian has gone solo and from the sounds of it, that was a good decision. While I'm not familiar with Love Arcade, I am LOVING "When She Turns 18," the debut solo single from Christian TV. To me it sounds fresh, fun and radio friendly...a future electro-rock smash in line with Mike Posner, Ed Drewett and other similar artists out right now.
Now signed to Universal Motown in the States and Mercury Records in the UK, Christian TV prepares to release his solo debut. Working with the likes of Benny Benassi, Quinn Allman (guitarist with The Used) and Luke Walker (The Deftones, Tyga, Leighton Meester), the album is called Mr. Berishaj's Diary of an 80s Baby and should be out late 2010 or early 2011. At only 24 years old, Christian TV wears a lot of hats - singer, songwriter, producer, remixer. Very impressive indeed! What's more, Christian TV has a fan in Britney Spears, who tweeted a link proclaiming her love for the (original) video. U.S. iTunes fan can download his EP for "When She Turns 18" featuring a remix by LA Riots (listen HERE). Christian TV recently supported Pete Wentz's new outfit Black Cards in the UK. I expect to hear lots more from this talented guy in the months to come.
