Create/Control Announce First Three Acts

3 April 2012 | 6:24 pm | Staff Writer

Metric, The Jungle Giants and OPOSSOM join the new label.

Dew Process and Secret Service imprint Create/Control have lined up Canadians Metric and Brisbane's The Jungle Giants.

New Zealand's OPOSSOM have also been announced today, as part of the label's first reveal.

The label was launched earlier this year as the latest in the wave of re-structured labels which claim to give more power back to the artist. Largely it's for artists who have the ability to create their own recordings without label funding who will then use the label for distribution, promotion and marketing.

Bands are also given access to an online store so they are able to sell directly to fans.

At the time of launch label head Paul Pittico told Your Daily SPA, “I can't say what the [other labels] will do, but I think if we have success the others will follow. Some of the other platforms I've seen this year seem to be enhancing licensing deals, but I don't know enough about them to be sure.”

Metric, who have been a successful independent band off their own back, will release their album Synthetica through the label in mid-June. The Jungle Giants have a new EP that the label will handle and producer Kody Nielson aka OPOSSOM has his debut album Electric Hawaii ready for an early June release.
