Aldous Harding has shared her latest music video for the track 'Blend'.
Aldous says of the video "The concept is based on that awful scene from 'Apocalypse Now' where the playmates pile out of the helicopter. I spent eight hours dancing on a Lazy Susan, it was easy really"
Grayson Gilmour returns with second single ‘Blow Back’ - an immersive bed of lush strings and hocketing synths; a late-night (or early morning) love song, bodily motions abstracted. Pre-orders also available for his new album - Otherness
An artist of rare calibre, Aldous Harding does more than sing; she conjures a singular intensity. Her body and face a weapon of theatre, Harding dances with steeled fervor, baring her teeth like a Bunraku puppet's gnashing grin. On 19 May, Aldous Harding’s album Party opens its doors to the world; the invitation finally open after many months on the waiting list.
Party (produced with the award-winning John Parish; PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse) is released in New Zealand on Flying Nun and elsewhere on global indie super-label 4AD (Grimes, Pixies, Cocteau Twins).
