Founded in 2000 by Mark Bowen and Dick Green from Creation Records, Wichita Recordings has quickly become one of London’s most notable independent record companies.

Ranging from worldwide successes such as Bloc Party, Bright Eyes (Fevers and Mirror being their first release), Yeah Yeah Yeahs to underground favorites Cheatahs, FIDLAR or Cloud Nothings, Wichita is – indeed – “still on the Line”.
