“Excellent Alternative Folk from New Zealand”
From her s/t debut album released in July 2014.
This is the definition of gorgeous; I especially love her vocal tremor, what a lass. Her work puts me in mind of great albums in recent years from First Aid Kit and Laura Marling. This is a very good thing. She’s been on the go for nearly 10 years now, so I rather suspect we are reaping the benefits of a long gestation period.
Aldous Harding’s gothic-folk music is not for the faint of heart. Disarming in its desolate imagery and stark instrumentation, it deals with the raw materials 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. ~ greatescapefestival.com
