Aldous Harding - Aldous Harding
This product is currently sold out.
Aldous Harding got her start in Lyttelton, a port town on the outskirts of Christchurch. There she has kept sailors in check with cheek and a strong-songed tongue. She caught the ear of locals Ben Edwards and Delaney Davidson playing under her own name, Hanna Harding, alongside band The Eastern. Aldous Harding's lead single, Hunter, has been characterised by Harding as a gothic fairytale. This is folk music simple and bleak with Hardings fragile coo reminiscent of retiring, 60s-era folk singers Vashti Bunyan and Linda Perhacs. Hunter seems to occupy a place outside of time, opening with the refrain, He's a hunter, he's a good man/Be brave when he brings you nothing home and closing with a vision of blood streaming down a river.
