We’re super excited to announce the signing of Target Archery, the newest project of Ambrose Nock, to the Hidden Shoal family. Following on from his work with Perth’s sun-dappled musical instrumentalists Apricot Rail, Ambrose Nock explores the fertile realm of delicate, experimental post-pop with his new project Target Archery. Influenced by the likes of Sound Dust-era Stereolab, left-of-centre indie-pop bands such as Lacto-Ovo, The Go! Team and Ninetynine, and a dash of late ’80s Sonic Youth, Target Archery mine an inspiring new seam of life-affirming melodies and instrumental texture.
Crafted in an isolated studio in rural Western Australia over a period of three years, debut release Clock of the Long Now is an exploration of delicate, experimental post-pop. The album features contributions from Apricot Rail members Justin Manzano (production and instrumentation) and Jack Quirk (guitars). The album will see release on the 2nd of October with the first single dropping on the 4th of September.
