We really weren't expecting such an incredible turnout for our debut event. We would like to thank you all for the support & special gratitude to IDLES, Penelope Isles, Daisy Coburn, The Kiffs & our very own Winter Gardens. Inspiring, beautiful sets from all.
Moving forward, expect to hear updates on our next release very soon. We also plan on hosting more nights at the BlackMarket VIP, so make sure you keep up to date on our social medias.
So here we have the shimmering dream-punk odyssey of "Coral Bells", the first release from the first band on our roster, Winter Gardens. The bone-coloured 7" vinyl, limited to only 100 copies & including an exclusive Cocteau Twins cover on the b-side, can be pre-ordered now through our store. Check out the new music video below...
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.
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.
