The Skinny: Century Media is happy to announce the signing of the Serbian-based band, Destiny Potato. Said the band of the signing: “Just a few months after we officially formed the band we got an opportunity to play our first show at Euroblast 2011 where we met some boys and gals from Century Media as they came to hear/see us play. Not long after the fest we got in touch with them and after months of negotiations we are finally here and really looking forward to an amazing collaboration with all the great people in and around this label.”
Officially formed in the spring of 2011, Destiny Potato mastermind, David Maxim Micic and singer Aleksandra Djelmas had been writing and recording songs together since they were 16. Maxim and Djelmas attended the same high school and both their fathers played in one of Serbia’s most popular progressive rock bands, Yu Grupa.
“I officially met Alex in a music class,” says Maxim. “We knew our father’s played together so we first started talking about that, then we realized we both loved pop music and would get together after school and write lots of piano based tunes with dreams of one day having a number one song on the pop charts.”
The band is currently wrapping up the recording of their debut album, to be released via Century Media in early 2013, but have posted the following rough mix of the track, “Dark Side of You”.
