After overwhelming demand for her sell out August shows, New Zealand gothic-folk artist ALDOUS HARDING returns to Australia in February-March 2020, for a handful of very special performances.
Joining her in Sydney is US indie-folk artist HAND HABITS. Bringing tender songs from sophomore album placeholder, their layered performance “pays scrupulous attention to detail in transfixing songs that function like intricate dioramas” (NPR).
Local LAURA JEAN brings her classically inspired folk to Melbourne. Known for the striking beauty of her music, Laura supported Aldous on her UK and Europe tour earlier this year. Get a taste with lush single ‘Girls on the TV’.
Aldous Harding’s must-see live experience has set critics and audiences alight. The overwhelming response to this year’s striking Australian performances has taken the cult star to phenomenal heights; her bewitching, bewildering set lauded as the best new thing in music.

The New Zealander’s third album, Designer, was released earlier this year to widespread acclaim. A surreal folk masterpiece, it earnt rave reviews globally, earlier this year winning APRA NZ Silver Scroll for whimsical single ‘The Barrel’.
Aldous Harding’s truly remarkable stage presence has captivated Primavera, Laneway Festival, Fairgrounds, and Meredith Music Festival, and during a sold out run of US and UK headline dates, Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Later… with Jools Holland, and NPR’s Tiny Desk series.
