NAME: People In The Sky

FROM: Holloway Road, London

BORN: September 2006

KEY ARTISTS: Friendly Fires (“genre-defying leftfield pop”), Plugs (“three-piece who combine everything from vaguely Afro instrumentation to tweaked minimalism, sometimes within the same song”), Wax Stag (“purveyor of wholesome retro-futurist synth anthems”), Ghostape (“otherworldly kraut-inspired mantra-man from Sweden”), Shesus (“lurching Slits-meets-Mars Volta bass-heavy cosmic punk four-piece from Ohio”).
DEBUT RELEASE: Friendly Fires ‘Photobooth’ EP

FORTHCOMING RELEASES: Plugs ‘That Number’, Friendly Fires remix EP, Wax Stag ‘Oh’, Ghostape ‘Ghostape’.

THEY SAY: “I started the label primarily to put out Friendly Fires material,” says the band’s manager and People In The Sky owner Jerry Dickens. “But it’s taken on a bit of a life of its own. The label’s aesthetic is pretty hard to pin down, to a great extent the artists themselves define it, but hopefully there’s a common thread of individual creativity that runs through the look and feel of each release. Away from the harsh glare of the ‘new rave’ hype, there seems to be a genuine, instinctive, grassroots blurring of the indie /rock/electronic boundaries and all sorts of interesting stuff is being thrown up and into the equation, anything from krautrock to post-rock, underground disco to shoegaze, Afro rhythms, punk, minimal, whatever. Whilst I don’t go looking for it necessarily, it feels good to be stumbling across it.”

    Hey there People In The Sky. I assure you that this is definately not spam. I have a few radio shows in which I try and play the best alternative, up and coming and indie music out there. The station I'm affiliated with is quite low key at the moment yet my shows gets a steady listenership of around 1000 hits a month. My plan is to be able to develop the shows by making open connections with labels such as yourself. Is there any way in which we'll be able to work together?
