BritishPopSongs is an online record label releasing singles at a fast pace.
The musical style is British 70’s 80s and 90s and influenced by artists such as David Bowie, Roxy Music, ColdPlay, Blur and Oasis. It embraces social networks such as FaceBook, Twitter and Soundcloud to get out to a wide range of fans. The singles are release in two weeks slots with BEST OF compilations twice a year.
The official start date has been put down as 1′st of October 2010 and was founded by former London musician/artist/producer Ian Nilsen without any funding in an attempt to get what he describes as his own sound out in the big world. The idea was to create a label that much more should be identified by a sound than by individual artists.
BPS also embraces attempts of online magazines, internet radio channels, YouTube channels, live concerts, merchandising and books.
BPS has a close tie with a movement names NewBritPop, that sort of takes the 90’s BritPop in a new direction without pretending to match the scale of the original.
Ian Nilsen, Label Manager
“It’s all about having a degree of fun and getting songs out in the big world, songs and sounds that lives in me. It’s also about having full control about whats going on and being able to do just about everything you want to with having a steady flow of opinions from other people. If we want to change strategy over night, well, we do it, if we want to release a live recording done this afternoon, well, the off we go.”
During 2011 BPS is planning to embrace traditional channels such as terrestrial radio and TV and bigger commercial advertising campaigns.
