WE'RE CHANGING OUR APPROACH - IN A BAND? YOU NEED TO READ THIS!

Over the past seven years It's All Indie grown and grown, and recently I've been thinking that I need to go back to our roots. Don't get me wrong, it's great we post about a lot of different bands and post loads of news articles, but I don't want to be chasing 'page views' like other sites, so I've come up with a few things I'm going to stick by to give the lesser-known bands a shout and to be heard.

Yes - I'm going back to helping the new acts!


SO this is what I'm going to be doing now!
  • Unsigned bands - I'm going to focus on a lot more unsigned bands and acts that have just been established and post about their tracks and shows etc...
  •  Premières - if you'd like your music to be premièred by us drop me an email to - fred@itsallindie.com - and we'll hook something up! We have 50,000+ followers we get a reach to week in week out. We'd push the post for a whole 7 days and help you draw more of a following through our social media channels.
  • Track of the week - This was a big part of the growth of the website to begin with and I feel like since I took it out of the blog we've been missing something, so if you've got a new track and you want people to hear it drop me an email to - fred@itsallindie.com - and make the subject title TOTW2017 and I'll check it out! I'll do my best to respond to all emails!
  • Weekly playlist - Like most sites do, I'm going to start a Spotify playlist, as well as keeping the Soundcloud account ticking over.
  •  
  • Interviews - I'll be making more of an effort to do interviews, this'll be from the small to the big acts, I mean if I get given the opportunity to interview The 1975, Kasabian or Bloc Party again of course I'll be doing it!
  •  
  • Festivals - I'm not going to be completely out of the loop and I'll be making sure that festival news and line-up announcements will still be published on the website. After all, that's where a lot of people find out about new bands these days!
  •  
  • Album reviews - I'll be doing a minimum of an album review a week, ideally aimed towards the small bands who find it hard to get a review in, but please do expect me to review some albums from established acts too.
  • COMPETITIONS!!! - We're bringing back competitions, be sure to 'like' our Facebook page and 'follow' us on Twitter to keep up to date with them!
  • Collaborations - We're looking to collaborate with other zines, facebook pages and sites - so if you run one or know someone who does get in touch!

    If you'd like to submit anything to me please email me at  - fred@itsallindie.com - with the subject titles as...
    - News features - NEWS2017
    - Track of the week features - TOTW2017
    - Album reviews - ALBUM2017

    Lets start a revolution! It's not like every day that a website that has over 50,000 followers changes their direction and aims at at new and unsigned bands.
