After a year of near non-stop touring to enthralled and amorous crowds—including extensive tours through North America and coveted European festival slots such as Green Man, Latitude, Iceland Airwaves to name a few—Aldous returns to her homeland showcasing her latest 'Party' album alongside unrecorded new material at some of NZ's most spectacular stages. These are Aldous' first Kiwi shows since her string of three intimate shows in Auckland—all of which sold out within minutes.
The release of Aldous' sophomore album 'Party' produced with the acclaimed John Parish (PJ Harvey, Perfume Genius) on indie super-label 4AD (Cocteau Twins, Deerhunter, Grimes) and Flying Nun (NZ-only), has seen her trajectory propel her into the international spotlight.
The Observer exulted in a five-star review: "Harding is nothing less than amazing – a nuanced musician, a startling writer and a presence so intense."
"A force beguiling the world with her 'spellbinding' songwriting." - The Guardian
"Nico in a private karaoke room singing Jewel until closing... her voice is capable of a spectrum of subtle turns, and her knack for metaphor is top notch." - Rolling Stone
Aldous is joined on all gigs by indie-pop songwriter Martin Phillipps of 'The Chills' fame. Phillipps has an accordingly devout following around the globe and he will be sharing selections from a career-glittered with pop gems spanning three decades.
