Test CardExciting times my friends as we get to to announce the signing of the wonderful Test Card to Hidden Shoal. Test Card’s stunning 2016 album Start Up Close Down is now part of our licensing catalogue and available for use across film, tv, games, web and beyond. Listen to the album and read more about Test Card here.

Start Up Close Downs hypnotic and enveloping drift belies the level of craft and composition that makes each track so captivating. The album plays out like the soundtrack to a nocturnal drive, painting the journey’s objects as they pass by. As much slow-motion dream-pop as it is ambient-electronica, each track feels like a subtle revelation, a gradually unfolding description of a unique, enraptured environment we are only just discovering.
