Hiraeth Records was founded in 2018 in The Netherlands and took its name from the Welsh word ‘Hiraeth‘, which means:
“a homesickness for a home to which you cannot return, or for a home which may have never been.”
At Hiraeth Records, we specialize in music from both veteran and new artists across various genres, including Vaporwave, Dreampunk, and Synthwave. Our label features music ranging from New Age to Cyberpunk-influenced Ambient.
Take a look at our catalogue and artists!
At Hiraeth Records, we strive to provide premium-quality items at affordable prices that will appeal to every music collector out there!
All of our records are pressed on high-quality 180-gram vinyl, protected by anti-static inner sleeves, and housed in 300-gram heavyweight jackets with a thick outer sleeve. To minimize damage, our records are shipped ‘out-of-sleeve’. Our CDs come in stylish Super Jewel cases with an Obi-strip. We make a conscious effort to produce our products in an environmentally-friendly manner.
Hiraeth Records ships worldwide!
With distribution warehouses in The Netherlands and the USA, we offer affordable international shipping. All items are typically in stock and available for immediate shipment. We do not sell pre-orders – unless stated otherwise, so you won’t have to wait for months to receive your order. Depending on your location, you can visit either our USA Shop or our EU Shop.
If you have any questions or need more information, please visit our FAQ page.
