Chloe March ‘May’ – Music Video and Single

Hidden Shoal is proud to present the beautiful new music video for ‘May’ by Chloë March, taken from her Under The Day EP. There’s a wistful echo of Satie in Chloë March’s ‘May’. The restraint of the piano performance and March’s sweetly forlorn vocal are accompanied...

The Star Department “Pea Green Boat” Reviewed at 4ZZZ

A dense, highly enjoyable experimental pop record by the Irish band, out through Perth’s Hidden Shoal. Spin this to round out the cold weather and reminisce about how good it was. Highlight: Superhawk – an aesthetically brilliant pop ballad with Steve Reich-ish compositional flourishes.

HC-B “Rough” Reviewed at PopDose

“It takes a great record to remind me how awkward it can be — yes yes, like dancing to architecture — to write about really good instrumental rock music. For the moment, the band putting me in said position is HC-B, the record is the group’s latest Hidden Shoal...

Elisa Luu “Enchanting Gaze” Reviewed at Igloo Mag

“Ringing in summer with church bells made of piano wire and synthesizer nubbins chiming charmingly out of sync, “Sabadilla” opens Elisa Luu’s brief but memorable new collection of sound art pieces. Her Enchanting Gaze is fixed on the close and personal,...

Les Limbes EP Reviewed at Hypnagogue

“Crusted in thick and gritty heavy metal tropes, from crunchy distorted guitars to viciously assaulted drums, Les Limbes’ debut EP is one of those albums you throw on when you need to break a speed limit somewhere. It’s just four tracks and less than 20 minutes...
