Hidden Orchestra announce second album
Archipelago to be released October 1st
We are delighted to announce the imminent second album from Hidden Orchestra. Entitled ‘Archipelago’, the album will be released on 1st October on CD, digital and premium vinyl.
Following their 10,000 selling debut, ‘Night Walks’, the new LP sees Joe Acheson, the musical mastermind behind the talented Edinburgh four-piece, exploring and developing many of the themes from their debut while introducing new guest players, instruments and found sounds.
The core quartet of Hidden Orchestra is formed around the duelling drum kits, percussion and electronic pads of drummers Tim Lane and Jamie Graham, completed with the piano and violin of Poppy Ackroyd and Acheson’s bass and original samples. Their star has risen steadily since the release of ‘Night Walks’, with a genuinely organic buzz building as word has spread about their intricately crafted yet viscerally emotive and energetic sound; complemented by the highly in-demand live show which they have toured through more than 20 countries, in addition to tour support slots for acts including Bonobo.
The first official single preceding ‘Archipelago’ will be the double A-side “Vorka”/”Spoken”. This brand new music will be premiered very shortly, so watch this space. In the meantime, you can enjoy “Flight” on Soundcloud here, where it is nudging 700,000 plays.
