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.
Aldous Harding is finishing her third studio album. The upcoming release reunites her with John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse) with whom she worked on the acclaimed Party. Released in 2017, this second album catapulted Harding onto the world stage, featuring on numerous end-of-year polls and was named Rough Trade Shops’ Album of the Year.
She Drew The Gun make impassioned, hypnotic and darkly ornate psych-pop built around the lyrically evocative songwriting of singer-guitarist Louisa Roach.
