Listen to the Kiwi singer-songwriter Aldous Harding's new song "Elation"

KEXP Session & 2017 Tour announced | 29th October: Vienna

Kiwi singer-songwriter Aldous Harding has aired a brand new song, entitled "Elation". Taken from the recording sessions for her recent album "Party", Harding assumes the role of chanteuse, as the slow-burn of "Elation" builds from a quiet lament to a dramatic zenith.

Listen to "Elation" on streaming services.

Earlier this summer, Harding performed the track exclusively for KEXP. Check out the startling performance HERE.

Aldous Harding will be on the road for the rest of the year, performing her extraordinary live show in Europe, UK, New Zealand and Australia. A full list of dates can be found below. For further details head to her official site.

Aldous Harding’s second album "Party" was recorded with the award-winning John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse) in Bristol, taking Harding away from her New Zealand base for an intensive two-week immersion in the studio. As well as a raft of musical contributions from Parish, Perfume Genius’s Mike Hadreas lends vocals to recent single "Imagining My Man" and Party closer "Swell Does The Skull". Full of sinister torch songs, quiet opines and eerie odes "Party" has dazzled critics, leading to a startling performance of "Horizon" on Later… with Jools Holland (which can be viewed here).


Official videos for "Horizon", "Imagining My Man" and "Blend", all directed by Charlotte Evans, can be viewed below.
