New York-based independent label Partisan Records is launching a European office in London. The new Euro-HQ will be headed up by former RCA and Island Records exec Adam Shearer, and will oversee UK releases by Partisan artists Heartless Bastards, Callers and Diamond Rugs in the next year.

Confirming his new job, Shearer told CMU: “I’m delighted to have been given the opportunity to launch Partisan in the UK and across the rest of Europe. We have an eclectic, exciting roster of acts that I believe will find a good home here, and I look forward to boosting the profile of both the label and our artists over the coming months and years”.
