A Day in the office at BritishPopSongs

It’s about a few weeks within the release of a BEST OF and an EP from multi talented hipster M.A.G.N.U.S. and its pretty busy at the BritishPopSongs office.

There are quite a few things to tie up before all is ready. Even in today’s world of online releases and marketing nothing should be forgotten about when you are to release a song. Many of the social networks that you use in todays marketing, don’t allow for boredom or mistakes because as it is people simply moves on to the next thing on their Facebook or twitter pages.



The big thing today is not about cost of production and distribution as such, but more about having something original to offer the world. And it will be like that more and more.
It is no secret that there are a lot of music out there, so you need something different to stand out from the crowd, however BPS do not see it a as a problem that so much music exists in cyberspace.

We caught up with Ian for a round-up…

First of all, I think the ability to put out music without involvement of complex contractual obligations is one of the most important things that has happened in the world of music today. effectively you can do whatever you want, whenever you want and as you please.

If you sell or not is another question, but that’s nothing new, it has always been like that. It is true that if you put songs out in cyberspace you do earn pretty well if you control your own rights and releases, but that could well be nothing if you sell none. Nobody is going to find you if they don’t hear about you. But again if it cost nothing or next to nothing to produce then you need not to sell many before you breaks even in he first place.

Exposure is important, but I do believe that a good song, always will get discovered, however long time it will take. There are many good songs out there, but not many that stands out as such. You don’t often know it yourself, it sorts of happen in front of you. A good song is the sum of so many things, The vocal, lyrics, beat, chord progressions but also the timing of the all. That is what did make England such an important place for modern music, all about timing, fashion and social/political events leading up to it. I have held many discussions with people around me , that really do not believe and share my views and its an uphill struggle, but i’ll stick to my guns and go on.

However having said that, I leave plenty of room for improvement, and are not afraid to turn around 100 degrees if something does not work”

New Rock’n Roll attitudes in an evolving musical landscape.

Its clear that the best thing about touring as a live band, is to finish your show and get out into the city nightlife.



If you are fed up with a too cool to mention attitude from some bands it’s refreshing to meet someone like the artists on cool label BritishPopSongs. You’re not alone in thinking that many bands have displayed a rather obnoxious attitude over the years towards everyone around them, but it seems that this trend is slowly changing. Is it because adulthood has set in, that We don’t know but, but we are looking forward to a 2011 and a more reasonable behaviour, such as from the folks at BritishPopSongs on the road, with… yeah, endless nights for sure, but also a much more peaceful setting that one would expect.


2010 was the year it all began at BritishPopSongs, where offers for doing things differently was turned down, to make way for this new look setup and a rather new way of making records.

Some of the tunes that comes out qualify for “tunes of the year” for sure, but it is now to be seen if this exciting new setup stands the present climate in the entertainment industry. Odd are in favour.

“In times likes these, the best thing is to be innovative and to do your own thing”, say founder Ian Nilsen, “We will release records that will be kept and listened and re-listened to by as many people as possible. If it’s possible to make durable and well crafted songs under tight deadlines and budgets then it’s a rare pleasure, and something I’m truely happy tp be part of”

So speaking of BritishpopSongs, if we for once can see a good initiative come out commercially on top, it so absolutly has all the odds going for it.
