Our 6 releases so far
Stillwave - Sell Another Soul
Dutch three-piece formation Stillwave is making waves. A lot of them! Not only in their hometown (Utrecht, The Netherlands), but also abroad. Lovely critics from the likes of Q Magazine and Clash, but also several UK headline tours. Not a major surprise, given the fact they get most of their inspiration from the UK and British bands. Comparisons that are often drawn include The National, Joy Division and Editors.
Sell Another Soul is their first full-length and now exclusively on vinyl with Final 500 Records.
One Week Wonder - Mars
One Week Wonder is the next big thing from Iceland. Yes, Iceland. The tiny country with the extremely rich history (and future) in music. Our three guys from One Week Wonder are inspired by the likes of Pink Floyd, Ennio Morricono and Air. They prefer to record their tracks on an old-skool, 24-track tape recorder. This sound has already led them to perform at SXSW, Icelandic Radio, Airwaves Festival and we are extremely proud to release their debut EP on vinyl with Final 500 Records.
Trip To Dover - Fade Into Gold
Fade Into Gold, Trip To Dover’s newest record is a new chapter following a long period of grief and pain. On the one hand, the record is about not knowing what the future will bring, but on the other side also about continuing to breathe and embrace whatever the future holds for you. This Dutch indie-electro duo previously resided in Brighton for a couple of years and produced a great indie record with Fade Into Gold. A record that reminds us of The Naked and Famous, CHVRCHES and The Killers.
Satellites - Satellites.04: GLITCH
Johnny Vic from England (and living in Copenhagen) is SATELLITES. He has written, played every note and self-produced two critically acclaimed albums (Rough Trade top Album of the Year).
Late last year, a family trauma stopped him in his tracks and prompted him to a write a whole other record in the hiatus: SATELLITES.04: GLITCH.
“As you might imagine, it’s pretty personal stuff. I make no apology if it’s not exactly easy listening. But these feelings needed to come out. I just can’t ignore the songs.”
Crying Boys Cafe - CAFE
Crying Boys Cafe (CBC) is an upcoming band from the city of Rotterdam (The Netherlands) and is the brainchild of singer and songwriter Jasper Hupkens. With electryfying live performance they already conquered many Dutch venues, festivals and radio stations. They are even labeled The Dutch answer to Future Islands. But also Guy Garvey (Elb0w), Beirut and Mac DeMarco come to find. Final 500 Records releases their very first EP, called Cafe.
Revere - Man of Atom EP
REVERE, from London is a six-piece that has been receiving acclaim for many years now. Comparisons with Arcade Fire, Muse, Beirut and Elbow, performances at Glastonbury and The Great Escape and airplay on BBC Radio. This new, and their last, record Man of Atom EP has been produced by TJ Allen (Bat for Lashes), mastered by Ian Carter (Ghostpoet) and features Charlie Barnes (guitarist for Bastille) and Gabby Young.
