We’re excited to announce that Helsingfors will be releasing the rather fantastic ‘Schematics’ EP through 405 Records!

Consisting of Daniel King, James Morris, Barry Rogers, Alan Ross and John Spears, Helsingfors blend the intricacy of Math Rock with the epic beauty of Post-Rock. The ‘Schematics’ EP is easily the best way to spend four of your english pounds (which includes postage!).

1. Angle of Depression
2. Truncation Error
3. Russsian Inversion Notation
4. The Panda Conundrum

Limited run of 250

It’s been a dream of mine since I was young to start a record label and to help promote the bands I love. Over the last few years the music business has changed a lot and subsequently a lot of independent labels have died out, which is a real shame but I still feel that if you do it right, it can be a success.

405 Records won’t function in the traditional way. We won’t be signing any bands to three album deals. Instead we’ll be releasing singles/EP’s in limited runs, which we’ll sell through this site.

I still believe in the magic of actually buying a physical product so we’ll be using the CD format as much as possible, with the emphasis on beautiful packaging at all times.

So there we have it. Another guy trying to start a record label. Let the hunt for bands commence.
