Rockaway Beach 2019 3 January 2019

What an incredible & productive start to the year we have had! Thank you ever so much for all the support we have received so far - we have some very exciting announcements coming up.

In just over a week's time Winter Gardens will be opening the Saturday of Rockaway Beach Festival, their first ever festival appearance.

Rockaway is a boutique festival held at the Butlins Bognor Regis holiday resort, focusing on new & unsigned artists alongside some truly inspirational established musicians. The line-up this year has just got better & better.

Be sure to catch us for some free AUS goodies & Winter Gardens merchandise.

Welcome to AUS 20 December 2018

austerity records was started by two mates, Garry & Jim, that shared an unabating passion for new & upcoming artists & consistently found themselves going to the same independent gigs in Brighton & the surrounding areas.

They decided to use this mutual admiration for local music to start their own label, in an attempt to form a much-needed new platform for fresh, upcoming & passionate artists in the South.

Eastbourne-based Winter Gardens are the first exciting members of the family, with some rather impressive festival & support slots under their belts. The band, a blend of mesmeric dream-pop & the energy punk, will be releasing their first single via AUS early next year. More to come soon.

For now, we welcome you. Get inspired.
