Smalltown Supersound confirmed this week that Serena Maneesh have inked a deal with legendary indie 4AD.
Says SM front-man Emil Nikolaisen to Norwegian daily Dagbladet.no: ’Had anyone asked me which label I’d rather be signed to, my answer would definitely be 4AD. What’s really positive about this is 4AD’s strong position - the label represents a kind of musical blood-line which we’re now a part of. We’re the latest addition to a long and rich tradition.’
Nikolaisen feels they’ve found a perfect match in the label that i later years have fronted such acts as TV on The Radio, Big Pink and Bon Iver: ‘4AD understands our music and know on which arenas it should be presented. As a global organisation, the label will represent us in territories we need to be in.’
Serena Maneesh’s next album is scheduled for release in March 2010.
