Aldous Harding


· by Alain Brunet

Intimacy, economy of means, folk minimalism, extreme sobriety… and a power of enchantment. With piano, acoustic guitars, and discreet saxophone, New Zealand’s Aldous Harding riskily reveals herself through these songs, both delicate in their apparent construction and sturdy in their poetic content. Her words amaze with their tumultuous, erotic, passionate, loving, spiritual properties. The placid waters are a decoy, this violence of the calm is a wonderful paradox, and Aldous Harding is a magician.
