2019 - The Genesis of Austerity Records 29 December 2019


Our sincere thanks and gratitude to each and everyone of you, those who have attended a show we have promoted, purchased vinyl, purchased digitally, streamed, viewed, taken photos, producers / engineers / promoters we have worked with and anyone who has followed or given us a like on the socials. We have been overwhelmed with the positive support we have received and feel incredibly accomplished within our first year.

We have made many new friends as well as discovering unique talents on our doorstop - releasing our first single physically & digitally, signing our first two artists, hosting three shows and co-booking a UK tour.

The 'Coral Bells' 7" is now sold out.
The last five limited edition Winter Gardens shirts are available HERE.

2020 will bring us the debut EP's from both Winter Gardens & SNAYX, both dusting the finishing touches as I type.

Here's to 2020!

All our Love,

Jim, Garry & Matt x

Welcome 20 December 2018

Nobody likes austerity, let's forget all the stigma that's attached to the word, this label is not advocating, glamorising, promoting or capitalising on this current affair.

Austerity was started by two mates Garry and Jim, who were consistently finding themselves going to the same independent gigs in Brighton, with a passion for new and upcoming artists, they decided to combine this mutual admiration for local music start their own indie label 'austerity records' - a label to encourage and form a platform for new, upcoming and passionate artists in the South East. Winter Gardens are the first exciting member of the family, with some rather impressive festival and support slots under their belts, WG will release thier first single on austerity records early next year, watch this space!
