UK to gain independent charts
Up-and-coming acts will be measured in two new UK charts.
Two new charts will be launched in the UK to measure up-and-coming acts signed to independent labels.

Later this month, the Official UK Charts Company will unveil the Singles Breakers and Albums Breakers charts, which will benefit indie music.

To be included in the new charts, which go live on June 29th, music has been released through a label which is at least half owned by a non-major, independent firm.

Furthermore, the Breakers Charts will also cover tracks from bands which have not managed to secure a top 20 release in Britain.

Martin Talbot, managing director of the Official Charts Company, told Reuters: "We've done test charts and the kinds of artists who would have benefited are Friendly Fires and Grizzly Bear."

Mr Talbot also claimed that groups signed with independent labels can achieve success, citing Arctic Monkeys and Oasis as examples, but said that the new rankings will allow more of them to reach the broader public.

Last week, Fleet Foxes singer Robin Pecknold told BBC News that he believes illegal downloading allows musicians to discover sounds which inspire and influence them.
