Sony Music Sweden’s newly started label Svedala has signed a direct artist deal with Danish rock/electro band Carpark North, with Worldwide rights excluding Denmark. In Denmark the band are signed to Copenhagen Records.
Carpark North have released three albums since 2003 and achieved major success in Denmark as recording and live artists. In addition to Platinum albums and sold out tours the band have been awarded prestigious awards such as the Zulu Awards, Danish Music Awards, Robert Award, Gaffa Prisen and P3 Prisen.
The Svedala label is creatively run by Mr Radar Music (Per Lindholm, Torbjörn Sten and Daniel Larsson). Amongst the three they have had major international and local success with artists like Kent, Eagle-Eye Cherry, Titiyo, Christian Walz, Koop, Sahara Hotnights, Esbjörn Svensson Trio, Lisa Ekdahl, Agnes Carlsson and at publishing house Murlyn Music with writers/producers such as Bloodshy & Avant, Anders Bagge + more. Torbjörn Sten is also co-founder of Kobalt Publishing.
The Mr Radar team signs Carpark North because they simply believe they are far too good to only operate in Denmark.
”It´s a brilliant band and we´re very proud and honored to be working with them outside of Denmark” says Torbjörn Sten at Mr Radar Music.
The first result of this collaboration will be released the spring of 2010.
