What record label would our music
video be released under…
• 4AD records is an British independent record
label formed by parent company ‘Beggars
• Launched in 1979, it now constitutes a
majority of activity to Beggars Group along
with ‘Matador Records’ and ‘Rough Trade’.
Why 4AD Records?
• 4AD Records would be a suitable record label for our

label that issued The Pixies’ debut album “Surfa Rosa”,
featuring the hit track ‘Where Is My Mind?’.
• The label also works with many artists sharing the indie
rock genre, with bands such as:
- Bon Iver
- Iron & Wine

1950’s focusing mainly on folk music. As the

Why Elekra Records?
• Although 4AD is an independent label true to its
roots, it doesn’t offer the worldwide appeal that

suitable company to support our video as not

Pixies, but it also has a huge variety of acts under
its name associated with the Pixies, such as:
- The Cure
- The Stooges
