ABOUT US RELEASES The William Blakes 
“Wayne Coyne”
Released April 2008

“The best Danish release in a long time”, “a show of force” (Berlingske) “a particularly awesome debut” (Gaffa). ARTISTS
Speed Of Sound was founded with two main ambitions. One was to release our own music and finally be free of the tyranny of “other people’s opinions”. The other was to tap into the seemingly overflowing vein of fantastic music being made in Denmark right now. We fantasized about issuing amazing albums where the musicians were in charge.

We (Fridolin Nordsø, Kristian Leth and Frederik Nordsø) began talking about Speed Of Sound late in 2007 and finally began the label in January of 2008. Frederik and Fridolin have both been working as producers for a wide array of pop and indie artists and Kristian has an immediate past as a music critic on Danish National TV.

We’ve always made music together, and the first release was our own band The William Blakes. We got a general distribution deal with our friends and collaborators at A:larm Music and set off for world domination in a local sense. 

We don’t believe in genres as more than an easy way of talking about music, and we don’t have any major image strategies. We’re just going to release a lot of really fine music that we ourselves are in love with.

These days a record label has to be something other than they have been before, and though there are as many ways to meet this challenge as there are ambitious music lovers, we found a solution that fits us. In essence our small company doesn’t exist in any pre-defined sense. With every record we think of a new way of defining our role as it relates to that band, artist and album.

That means that we can be creative partners, producers, mix and mastering technicians, band members or just nice uncles with a printing press and a distribution deal. It all depends on what the artist wants.

To us, that’s pretty optimal.

If you have something fantastic you really have to send us, do yourself a favor and pause... Think about it first; Do you really need a label? What can we do for you, that you can’t do yourself? We’re not going to pay you any money up front or anything. That’s not how it works. 

If you still want to send us your masterpiece after thinking that over, please send us links, not files. Use our email or our MySpace.

Now go check out the music.
