Friendly Noise Packing Up, Selling Out and Moving On

Friendly Noise Record Label is no more, they're selling out now with a sale

An end to 8 years of indie music

Friendly Noise were an indie label with a difference. Residing in Stockholm, Sweden and founded in 2002 by Stefan Zachrisson and Mattias Holmberg, Friendly Noise was a label that followed the philosophies and traditions of the late and great Sarah Records.

They provided a platform for unique and interesting indie acts to showcase their music. This included indie acts like Differnet, The Embassy and Liminals.

Equally as important is that Friendly Noise provided the Radio Dept. with a home for their music when they were still giving away records under the bedroom label, 'Slottet'. The Radio Dept. featured on three Friendly Noise records:

2003's Friendly Noise debut: Friendly People Making Noise,
2006's tribute to Sarah Records: Are You Scared to Get Happy?
2008's Radio Dept.cover of a Go-Betweens classic: Splendid Isolation

The guys at Friendly Noise have stated that they will no longer function as a record label and are packing up. Their last act will be to sell whatever records they have left over.

So if you're a fan and want to get your hands on a piece of indie pop history, then you should head over to their online store (while it still exists) and get yourself a low priced bargain

Friendly Noise Store: : First come first served, while stocks last.
