Hidden Shoal is 10!

Hidden Shoal is extremely excited to be celebrating its 10th birthday this month. It’s hard to believe that back in May 2006, Perth-based musicians Cam Merton, Stuart Medley and Malcolm Riddoch began Hidden Shoal Recordings as a means to put out releases by local artists. Tim Clarke, based in Melbourne, joined the team in 2007. Hidden Shoal has since gone on to become a much-loved independent label and publisher, releasing over 120 albums from a diverse range of international artists and licensing music from its catalogue across film, tv, web and compilation. Stay tuned for special anniversary announcements in the coming months!

The October Solution ‘1984’ – First Single from “Axis Swim Scar”

Hidden Shoal is excited to announce the release of ‘1984’, the first cut from Axis Swim Scar, the debut album by dream-pop architects The October Solution (Drew Sullivan of Slow Dancing Society and City of Satellites, and Jarrod Manuel of City of Satellites). While steeped in ’80s nostalgia, their music moves beyond familiar tropes to stand as defiantly futuristic and progressive, no better exemplified than on single ‘1984’, which draws upon the sweeping grandeur of Disintegration-era Cure. Axis Swim Scar resonates with soaring guitars, ethereal vocals, and deftly woven pop melodies, melding the incandescent ambient sounds of Slow Dancing Society within the propulsive songcraft of City of Satellites. The October Solution originally formed as EO in 2011, releasing two EPs, Breathe Your Air and Somewhere Human, before changing their name to The October Solution in 2013. While the duo operate at opposite ends of the globe – with Jarrod Manuel based in Adelaide, Australia and Drew Sullivan based in Spokane, USA – this independent collaboration was born at a City of Satellites production meet-up in the US, where the pair bonded over their shared love of ’80s and ’90s pop music and shoegaze. ‘1984’ is available now as a free download and stream. Axis Swim Scar will see official release on the 14th of April.

Kramies and City of Satellites Reviewed at Luna Kafe

Two lovely reviews for recent Hidden Shoal releases over at Norway’s Luna Kafe. The first was in November’s edition of the zine for City of Satellites‘ Remixed, “The outcome is stunning… With so many different remixers it is as expected some variations here, but it still feels like a wholesome album, tied nicely together by the underlining of City Of Satellites shoegazing dream-pop material… And in some parts, these mixes has not just made the tunes slightly different, or added another kind of quality, but actually turned the better part of them into something more, and by that; better.” – Luna Kafe The second review appeared in the just out December edition for Kramies‘ The European, “Kramies has with the aid of producer Todd Tobias (Circus Devil, Guided by Voices) and guitarist David Paolucci, made The European into a delicate melancholic and poetic swirl of pop-delight.” – Luna Kafe Hopefully you own both these releases and are sitting there nodding your head in agreement. If not however then head straight to the Hidden Shoal Store where you can stream Remixed and The European in full as well as purchase.
