Untitled Group, the team behind Beyond the Valley Music Festival, have launched Daily Nightly, a record label in partnership with Caroline Australia. ‘Daily Nightly’ takes its name from the 1967 trackwith the same title by Michael Nesmith of The Monkees. The song offers a veiled commentary on the Sunset Strip curfew riots of the 60’s, an exhibition more relevant than ever with the lockout (curfew) lawsnow heavily affecting Australia’s music industry.
The Monkees ‘Daily Nightly’ was also arguably the first widely known rock recording to feature a Moog Synthesizer, pushin the boundaries for its time. “We hope for our label to carry on this ethos, one thatreally excites listeners. Not only will we aim to push boundaries within our time sonically, we will also represent the label in a refreshing light aesthetically – from the visual components and unique locations ofour showcases to the brand identity curated by Louis Nuccitelli.” – Label Director Filippo Palermo.
The label will be showcasing talent from Australia and across the world with the debut releases coming in the next weeks from Australian artists Big Words and Arroyo.
Big Words have built a cult-like following since the release of their debut EP. Along with their breath-taking live show, the group has managed to clock over 3,800,000 streams on Spotify while having featuredon festival bills from Beyond The Valley, Strawberry Fields, Ability Fest and Pitch Music & Arts. All headline shows since their debut EP have been sell-outs including 3 back to back Abbotsford ConventOratory’s in 2018 which saw them transform an old church into a band room. They will release their new double single ‘Slow Dance’ on Friday 26th October.
Emerging Gold Coast-based duo Arroyo ooze a style reminiscent of the likes of alt-J, James Vincent McMorrow and Bon Iver, with a soul-infused slice of down-tempo indie-rock. Having worked alongsidethe likes of Jarryd James and Dead Letter Circus, the timing became imminent for this pair to write their own story – and thus, after one spontaneous studio session, Arroyo was formed. Richard Kingsmill premiered the label’s first single ‘Hold – Arroyo’ last night (Sunday 7th October) on Triple J. The single will be released this Friday 12th October.
The Daily Nightly label launch truly marks an exciting new chapter for Untitled Group whose growing roster of festivals includes Beyond the Valley, Pitch Music & Arts, Grapevine Gathering, Ability Fest &more, as well as artist management & touring companies.
