We have some very exciting news to share, with two new wonderful artists joining the Hidden Shoal family!

Perth-based producer and musician Al Smith, working under the DrAlienSmith moniker, has signed a publishing deal for his brilliant 4 track EP Under Songs, a monolithic slab of doom/shoegaze/post-rock. Smith’s other life sees him mixing and mastering other people’s recordings at Bergerk! Studios, and over the last 15 years he’s worked with more than 300 bands, including The Devil Rides Out, Drowning Horse, Abbe May, Eleventh He Reaches London, Claim The Throne and Extortion, as well as Hidden Shoal’s own Tangled Star. Check out the EP and more on DrAlienSmith here.

At the other end of the sonic spectrum and a hemisphere away we have Germany-based ambient experimental musician Kryshe (Christian Grothe). The stunning In Between EP will be released through Hidden Shoal on 25th September, as well as being added to the Hidden Shoal publishing catalogue. Kryshe’s exquisitely subtle and detailed ambient work is reminiscent of the collaborative work of Eno and Budd, as delicate yet assured melodies unfurl before being subjected to delicate manipulation. Read more about Kryshe here and be sure to sign up to the Hidden Shoal mailing list to be informed of the EP release.

Both In Between and Under Songs will also join the Hidden Shoal licensing catalogue and be available for all film, tv, games and web projects.
