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.

Deap Vally

Communion, the label that bought us Gotye’s debut single and Ben Howard’s first EP, are back working with Island on something a little different – LA girl duo Deap Vally.

Azealia Banks

With backing from NME and the BBC, 20 year old New Yorker Azealia Banks is set for an exciting 2012.

Willy Moon

Making noises in all the right places, Willy Moon will be releasing his new single Yeah Yeah on April 23 and debut album later this year.



Wildbeasts, Warpaint, Yuck and Melissa Auf De Mer all proudly call themselves fans of fans of London-based sisters Hannah and Colette Thurlow, also known as 2:54.
