Aldous Harding – S/T

Only 1 left in stock


What our staff has to say: “Beautiful, sparse folk with an ache to it. I love Aldous Harding’s voice, which reminds me of the vocal qualities of the British folk singer-songwriters of the 60s and 70s. This was her first record, and what better place to start listening than from here.” – Hannah

Aldous Harding’s songs are not for the faint of heart. Disarming in their desolate imagery and vulnerable instrumentation, they deal with the raw materials of life: birth, death, love and grief. Sometimes reminiscent of 60s-era folk singers Vashti Bunyan and Linda Perhacs, Harding’s work lies in more harsh terrain than her forebears – piercing the long history of the genre with a grit and sincerity rarely encountered. Based in New Zealand’s Southern port town of Lyttelton, Auckland-born Harding began playing to the public in small-town venues and busking on the streets. It wasn’t long before her name became synonymous with both the vivid devastation of her wordplay and the stark intensity of her performance; a unique blend of fragility and sinewy, world-won strength that belies her youth.
