New music


All of the newest artists from Universal Music UK. Who they are, what music they are playing, where and when you can catch them live and, of course, why our A&Rs signed them.

Palace

The London-based indie-quartet’s brooding, laid-back sound has been surrounded by hype, and with the release of their second EP Chase The Light, the hype might be about to get even bigger.

Kiko Bun

A rocksteady-sampling, instantly memorable summer boombox anthem, Kiko’s debut release Sticky Situation sparked an extraordinary level of online interest, swiftly resulting in Kiko’s signing to a very natural home at Island Records last year.

Years & Years

After the best possible start to 2015 for Years & Years with the trio being named as the winners of BBC Music Sound Of 2015 poll, things are looking up for Polydor’s electronic pop group.

George The Poet

George Mpanga is just 23-years old, but has already worked with some of the biggest names in music. With such an impressive musical pedigree, as well as an encyclopedic knowledge of music, you might ask why George is a poet.

Aquilo

The Lake District based duo made the jump from being in separate heavy metal and grunge bands to producing a drastically different melodic and ambient electronica that’s landed them on Radio 1’s In New Music We Trust playlist.

Juce

It’s fair to say 2014 was an important year for London-based girl group Juce. The Island trio developed their feel-good soul-pop sound and received critical acclaim whilst doing so.
