Losers land UK record deal

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Music News -

Fol­low­ing Cashier No 9’s record deal with Bella Union, Dublin band We Are Losers are the lat­est Ir­ish act to sign to a UK la­bel. The fourpiece will re­lease their de­but sin­gle, the dou­ble-A side Sun­set Song/Cheer­leader on Dance to the Ra­dio.

“When we went over to play the Live at Leeds fes­ti­val and got to know one an­other, they of­fered to put out our sin­gle,” ex­plained front­man Gavin El­sted. “We thought it was a per­fect fit, so we hap­pily ac­cepted.”

The Leeds-based in­de­pen­dent la­bel was founded in 2004, and has re­leased mu­sic by Es­ben and the Witch, Sky Larkin and The Pi­geon De­tec­tives in the past. Phil Slavin from DTTR told The Ticket that he was “blown away” when he first heard the band’s demos. Al­though there is no plan to record an al­bum at present, the band have other re­leases in the pipe­line for the com­ing months. The sin­gle will be re­leased dig­i­tally on July 15th, while the la­bel is of­fer­ing a free down­load of their track Moany.
