Aldous Harding is the debut studio album by New Zealand folk singer-songwriter Aldous Harding, originally released in July 2014 via Lyttelton Records.

Aldous Harding is a self-described “gothic folk” singer-songwriter from Lyttelton, New Zealand, and hails from a musical family. She caught the ear of locals Ben Edwards and Delaney Davidson playing under her own name, Hanna Harding, alongside band The Eastern.

The lead single from the album, "Hunter", has been characterised by Harding as a "gothic fairytale". This is folk music, simple and bleak with Harding's fragile coo reminiscent of retiring, 60s-era folk singers Vashti Bunyan and Linda Perhacs.

The album is stripped back and sparse, which allows Harding to have a direct line to the heart and soul of her songs. The album was co-produced by New Zealand singer-songwriter Marlon Williams and he has done a great job to allow Harding’s voice to shine through.

Her voice is distinctive, sounding mystical and otherworldly, certainly unique amongst more recent indie folk performers. Some of the songs are powerful, (“No Peace At All”), bright and upbeat (“Beast”) and intimate and intense (“Two Bitten Hearts”). The song “Merriweather” is simply beautiful with William’s harmony vocals and swirling strings giving it added depth and emotion.

This is an album that provides an emotional and powerful listening experience, and will draw the listener back for more.

Check out the tracks:  Hunter”; “Beast”; “No Peace At AllandMerriweather”.

This LP record is on black vinyl, pressed in New Zealand.
