Believe Digital is delighted to announce the signing of one of the UK’s most highly respected independent labels, One Little Indian. The international partnership will cover all digital audio and video services – including iTunes, YouTube, Amazon, Spotify – with the exclusion of the United States and Canada territories.
Originally founded in 1985 by members of anarchist punk band Flux Of Pink Indians, One Little Indian is inspired by DIY principles and prides itself on giving complete control to artists it feels deserve a shot at a wider audience. These have included Iceland’s The Sugarcubes (whose’88 debut Life’s Too Good was the label’s first million seller); The Shamen with the massive 1992 Number One hit Ebenezer Goode; Björk’s Debut in ’93; which become a worldwide hit for the iconic star. Further major successes came in the late-nineties from Skunk Anansie, Alabama 3 (who later sound tracked The Sopranos iconic opening credits sequence), and 2008’s Paul McCartney’s Fireman project in 2008.
In 2013 and the label continues to host artists as diverse as Sinead O’Connor, Dan Sartain, Cody Chesnutt, and HK119, while Bjork remains the cornerstone of the roster, releasing her innovative industry first app formatted seventh studio album, Biophillia, in 2011.
