Opening Doors for Indie Artists

Unsung Sundays is focused on finding great new artists — new favourites that the website’s readers might not have heard of. More often than not, these artists are indie — often unsigned, sometimes still preparing their first record.

Almost every person who is involved in this website, including its most vocal supporters, are people who love indie music. We’re band members (or some of us used to be). Some of us own music labels. Some of us are producers. Many of us are independent artists. Indie artists are the bleeding heart of Unsung Sundays. They’re our community. Without them, the site wouldn’t exist.

It’s my pleasure to announce that Unsung is going to be focusing on indie artists in new ways. Alongside the existing album reviews, features, interviews, and lists, we’re going to be investing heavily in new artists and trying to give the cream of the crop raised visibility in the industry.

We’re already starting this with Issue 136, which includes a music video premiere for New York City indie band Snack Cat. (It’s a great video, by the way — you should check it out.) We’re thrilled Snack Cat is partnering with us for this, and I hope we have the chance to cover them in the future.

We’ll likely roll out other features and articles over the coming months that are geared exclusively towards lesser-known artists. This is a passion project for us, and we want to do what we can to help.

What does this mean for you? Well, nothing is changing. If anything, Unsung is going to continue growing and expanding, but not at the expense of our existing content.

It does mean, though, that we’re eager to hear music from indie bands all over the world. If you know somebody with a recent record release or a video that you’d like to see represented in an indie magazine, or if you’re involved in a music marketing firm or at a record label and want to chat about how we can help, we’d love it if you emailed us. Thanks in advance.
