Gothic-folk artist Aldous Harding's performances have been described as 'striking that rare balance between fragility and full-blown possession' with sinister torch songs, gentle laments and eerie odes twisted by a touch of humour, hubris and quiet horror.

Harding initially ignited interest with her eponymous debut album released just two years ago and has been working with award-winning producer John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse) for her latest release 'Party'. Recently signed to 4AD (ex-NZ)/Flying Nun(NZ), Harding's Tuatara Open Late performance at City Gallery will be her last in the country before she heads off on an extensive tour of Europe, America and Australasia.
