Kobal’s recording company has signed Aussie indie rockers to a global deal.

The deal follows a huge breakout year for Spacey Jane, which saw them become the fifth most played artist on triple j Unearthed for 2019, and sell out three Australian tours.

The comprehensive AWAL deal includes global marketing, campaign coordination, sync licensing, and global distribution.

“Spacey Jane is one of the most exciting and energetic bands to come out of Australia for a long time and we at AWAL could not be happier they have chosen to partner with us for their debut album,” said AWAL Australia managing director Ben Godding.

“The connection they have with their fans is an absolute one-off, and the energy in their live shows is boundless. They are going to deliver an exceptional album next year.”

Spacey Jane are set to kick off 2020 with sets across Laneway Festival, having performed at Falls Festival, Splendour in the Grass, Yours and Owls, BIGSOUND and Wave Rock Weekender over the last 18 months.

They’ve also got a debut album in the works.

“We’re incredibly excited to be joining the family of AWAL Recordings artists carving their own paths to success,” said Spacey Jane drummer & manager Kieran Lama.

“To be allowed such a great deal of freedom, flexibility and independence for the release of our first ever album is such a fantastic prospect for us – we still feel new to the industry and to be able to figure things out on our own terms, and with the nurturing of such an artist-friendly organisation, is a massive privilege.

“Ben and Mary in the Australian office have taken such good care of our latest & upcoming releases, and the creative independence & encouragement we’ve enjoyed will allow us to walk into our first album rollout with confidence & optimism – we know we’re in great hands both locally & overseas.”
