Kaiser Chiefs Curate First Album Of 'Emerging Icons' Series Featuring Young Electrics

Ground-breaking new-music site Unsigned Band Review has announced the launch of an unprecedented series of albums of unsigned artists curated by major music stars - the Emerging Icons series.

The first album is curated by BRIT award-winning band Kaiser Chiefs and features a band called the Young Electrics - you can listen to the track that has been chosen by the Kaiser Chiefs here. The album is released on Monday 30th April.

Young Electrics have settled into the Brighton Scene very comfortably and are about to release their E.P 'Caught in The Rain' which has already received pick of the week on Absolute Radio. Their guitarist is Gary Moore’s son! With the interview in Wired Mag hitting shelves October 5th and a lead support slot with Transformer for Crash Records night at Brighton's Green Door Store there's lots of good things going on in the Young Electrics’ world.

Edith Bowman is a bit fan and had this to say about the band: "They are the artists of the future, putting on a great live show and bringing their ever growing faithful fan base with them!"

The Emerging Icons series is an innovative initiative to unearth the best in new UK musical talent. Each album in the series will contain a selection of thirteen original tracks by thirteen unsigned artists. The tracks will be hand-picked by an established music star from a pool of unsigned artists who have signed up to the highly successful new music community, Unsigned Band Review.

A percentage of the sales from each album will go directly to each unsigned artist with the remaining money getting invested back into the Unsigned Band Review community to provide opportunities for other unsigned acts.

“At a time when there is more music to listen to in more ways than ever before, it is getting increasingly hard for unsigned artists to get heard above the general noise. It is also becoming more and more important to give audiences a filter which highlights good new music and shuts out the bad. The Emerging Icons initiative not only gives exciting new musical talent a platform to get heard but also gives audiences a trustworthy new way to find good new music - recommended to them by their existing favourite music artists,” said Kat Jackman, founder of Unsigned Band Review and Emerging Icons.

Leading music site Unsigned Band Review, founded by award-winning music entrepreneur Kat Jackman, provides unsigned bands with a platform to get heard, reviewed and publicised by key and influential music industry experts. Since launching the free sign-up, ad-funded site in 2008, Unsigned Band Review has gone from strength to strength, attracting over 13,000 musicians to sign up and gaining attention in the national media for its innovation in music.
