Hidden Shoal is proud to announce the signing of garage-dreampop trio [The] Caseworker and Dutch-American singer-songwriter Kramies to its roster of artists.

With each successive release, garage-dreampop trio [The] Caseworker deliver their own timeless sonic magic. Their upcoming 2011 album Letters From The Coast has the feel of a shoegazing Velvet Underground reared by the Flying Nun label – the perfect balance of drone and chime. The band creates an enigmatic intimacy and atmosphere, which they wrap around immaculately crafted pop songs like smoke. Perfectly intoxicating.

Dutch-American singer-songwriter Kramies has been honing his inimitable craft for many years, bewitching all who have heard his music along the way. Fusing masterful songwriting with electronics and atmospherics, stepping into a Kramies song means being swept up into an emotionally resonant vortex of swooning pop that simply demands repeat listens.

[The] Caseworker’s new single ‘National Runner’ is released on 18 August, with their new album Letters From The Coast released on 22 September. Kramies new EP The European is released on 22 November with a single preceding the release in October.
