Hotly-tipped UK band Cabbage have signed a worldwide publishing deal with Blue Raincoat Songs.
The five-piece group from Manchester, who are also signed to BMG-owned record label Infectious, were recently selected for the BBC Sound Of… 2017 longlist.
They have self-released four EPs so far, culminating in the EP compilation Young, Dumb and Full Of… last year.
Jeremy Lascelles, CEO Blue Raincoat Songs said “Cabbage are the most exciting new band to have come out of this country in a long, long time.
“They write lyrics that are political, angry, aggressive but also extremely witty and insightful. On top of all that, they are a fucking great band. Boy, do we need a band like them in these dark and dangerous times.”
