Aldous Harding’s third album Designer finds the New Zealander hitting her creative stride. After the sleeper success of Party, Harding came off a 200-date tour last summer and went straight into the studio with a collection of songs written on the road. Reuniting with John Parish, producer of Party, Harding spent 15 days recording and 10 days mixing at Rockfield Studios, Monmouth and Bristol’s J&J Studio and Playpen. From the bold strokes of opening track ‘Fixture Picture’, there is an overriding sense of an artist confident in their work, with contributions from Huw Evans (H. Hawkline), Stephen Black (Sweet Baboo), drummer Gwion Llewelyn and violinist Claire MacTaggart broadening and complimenting Harding’s rich and timeless songwriting

Directed by Martin Sagadin, the off-kilter video for Aldous Harding’s first single ‘The Barrel’ can be viewed below….
