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!
