If you have plans tonight, cancel them, and find the best way to watch BBC Introducing, which will feature Malta’s very own Oxygyn, who will be performing an unreleased track which was produced by Peter Borg, who said that he started working together with the band in 2017, and is now proud to call them his friend!
Their recent track, Wicked White Lies, which was released in September, was also one of our favourites here at Bay, and had also made it onto Malta’s Top 10.
We cannot reveal much about the track that they will be performing tonight, but all we can say is that it is their poppiest so far in terms of writing and production. Whatever it is, we will be watching tonight to support our finest homegrown music, becoming the latest export!
Since its launch in 2007, BBC Music Introducing has been dedicated to discovering and supporting new music.
As of their 10th anniversary in 2017, artists supported by BBC Music Introducing artists have gone on, between them, to release:
- 14 UK No.1 singles
- 68 UK Top 10 singles
- 28 UK No.1 albums
- 54 UK Top 10 albums
There are now over 470,000 tracks – over 3 years-worth of music – uploaded to the BBC Music Introducing website and 190,000 artists are registered, including George Ezra, who says that “BBC Introducing was and still is the most amazingly inclusive platform I could have asked for.”
BBC Music Introducing also provides up-and-coming artists with broadcast opportunities on television and online, as well as the chance to perform at major festivals and showcases. In fact, 58% of the acts that performed at Reading + Leeds Festival in 2017 initially uploaded their music to the BBC Music Introducing Uploader.
Here’s hoping that we will get to see Oxygyn making a name for themselves in the UK in the very very near future!
