THE SECRET - OUT NOW!
"The Secret" is a goth-tinged song about the struggle to resist temptation, out on all streaming platforms now.
"The vocals pack such a compelling attitude here, channelling some of the big hitters of the genre like Patti Smith and Courtney Love ... we hope it earns the attention it deserves." -- Various Small Flames

On XtinaM’s debut album, If Your Name is Music, she tells a story of finding one’s way and new beginnings.
The goth-tinged, irreverent album opener, The Secret starts the journey through a dangerous and mysterious forest. Road Lover and Travelin’ Boy explore kiss-and-tell adventures on the road as the quest unfolds. The heady power-pop ballad, Love Will Save the Day, and the upbeat pop-punk ditty See Me Now close out the album with a message of rebirth, freedom, positivity and optimism for the future. Nods to glam rock, alt-country, folk and punk are threaded throughout the diverse range of material, all of which is performed by XtinaM on acoustic guitar, electric bass, harmonica, percussion, and foot stomp.
XtinaM has been compared to PJ Harvey, Linda Perry, Courtney Love, Patti Smith, Fiona Apple, KT Tunstall, Alanis Morrisette and David Bowie.
