beats 1-zane-lowe

Former Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe launched Apple’s Beats 1 radio station with a song from British indie band Spring King.

Lowe had previously played the track, “City,” on Radio 1 and said that the team kept coming back to the song. The move made the band very popular among talent scouts worldwide, and may of which have started a bidding war for their contract.

Here is a tweet from Spring Kid after the song aired on Beats 1:

The band is still unsigned and their manager Claire Southwick said that the band is in talks with a few different record labels. There are rumours that the band may have been close to signing a deal with a label before last night, however the band is probably getting a lot more offers after they aired on Beats 1.
