Aldous Harding - NPR 'Tiny Desk Session', North American Shows
Aldous Harding : NPR 'Tiny Desk Session', North American Shows
28th July 2017

Aldous Harding has earned a reputation for her transfixing live shows, securing praise as “utterly arresting" by The New York Times and “riveting” by Interview Magazine.  Today, her NPR Tiny Desk Concert premieres featuring three songs from her breakout album Party.

This Autumn, Harding will embark on a North American headlining tour playing her largest venues yet, following back-to-back sold-out NYC shows last spring.  Find all newly announced shows below.

Harding’s second album Party was produced with the award-winning John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse) in his hometown of Bristol, taking Harding away from her New Zealand base for an intensive two-week immersion in the studio.  As well as a raft of musical contributions from Parish, Perfume Genius’s Mike Hadreas lends vocals to recent single 'Imagining My Man' and Party closer 'Swell Does The Skull'.  Party has won critical acclaim with praise from NPR as “haunting” and called “dark [and] distinctly gothic” by Pitchfork.

Party by Aldous Harding is out now on 4AD.
You can buy from the 4AD Store here on LP/CD.  Limited LP purchases come with a bonus 7" featuring new track 'Elation'.
