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!

Gorgeous New Single from The October Solution

We’re excited to share the gorgeous new single from Australia via US dream-pop duo The October Solution, taken from their debut album Axis Swim Scar.  ‘Stolen’ distills Disintegration-era Cure and 80s pop romanticism into a slice of languid, escapist dream-pop. What’s most striking about this track is its restraint, able to hold the listener rapt, even when it strips back to just the soaring guitar of Drew Sullivan (Slow Dancing Society) and the ethereal vocals of Jarrod Manuel (City of Satellites). The October Solution work within and move beyond familiar tropes to present a defiantly futuristic and progressive vision. Axis Swim Scar resonates with deftly woven pop melodies, melding the incandescent ambient sounds of Slow Dancing Society within the propulsive songcraft of City of Satellites. Download the song for free via the band’s Bandcamp and be sure to check out Axis Swim Scar while you’re there. ‘Stolen’ is also available for streaming via SoundCloud.

Doomed Love & Sea Monsters – New Music Video from The October Solution

The new video and single from The October Solution is here! Last month we shared some exciting production stills from the shoot of ‘Lost’, and now the video is ready to blow your mind. Produced by CINEMÂCHÉ (Daniel Principe of Studio Sunkie), the video “tells the tale of a sea monster’s doomed love affair with a woman who abruptly disappears. During his obsession-driven search for her he not only comes to re-examine the darker aspects of their relationship, but also to question the very nature of everything he once believed.” Put that in your pipe and smoke it! The track itself brings to bear the duo’s redoubtable talents, melding the incandescent ambient sounds of Slow Dancing Society within the propulsive songcraft of City of Satellites. This is dream-pop of the highest order, with its transportive visual accompaniment the icing on the cake. ‘Lost’ is taken from The October Solution’s recently released debut album Axis Swim Scar. Watch the music video at YouTube or Vimeo, download the track at BandCamp and stream it at SoundCloud.   Related Items:New Memorybell Single and Music VideoNew Moonchy & Tobias Single and Music Video from the Forthcoming "III"Alpha Hall 'Rains' Single & VideoKramies 'Everything The End' Reviewed at Austin Town HallNew Moonchy & Tobias Single and Music...
