- Buy Tickets
Aldous Harding’s music is not for the faint of heart. Disarming in its desolate imagery and stark instrumentation, her songs draw from the core facets of life: death, birth, grief and love. There are few happy endings, but the power is in how Harding enters into battle; with a dancer’s grace and a boxer’s stance.
Harding initially ignited interest with her eponymous debut album released just two years ago. With echoes of folk luminaries Vashti Bunyan and Linda Perhacs, Harding’s work is one step removed from the modern world, but lies in more savage terrain than her forebears, wrought with a wry wit and tenacious gall.
For her 4AD debut, Aldous – real name Hannah – Harding has been working with award-winning producer John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse), and Horizon offers an enticing preview of that collaboration. The confrontational accompanying video, directed by Charlotte Evans, and produced by Evie Mackay, stars a combative Harding and her mother in the New Zealand hinterland.
