Aldous Harding's voices

Take 5

Aldous Harding is one of the most compelling voices of our time. Across three albums she has shapeshifted in every song, her voice bends and changes almost like stepping into a different character, with each story.Aldous is a spellbinding human in person too; on stage and in other interviews I’ve read and seen. But I learned more about her from this Take 5 than I ever have before. These songs reveal a lot about Aldous, as a performer, as a songwriter, and as an artist. This is one of those conversations where I could frame just about everything she said. From El Perro Del Mar to Nina Simone, this is the voice.God Knows (You Gotta Give To Get) - El perro del marStars (Live At Casino Montreux, 3rd July 1976)- Nina SimoneDiana - Alexander ‘Skip’ SpenceHouses - Elyse WeinbergJanitor - Suburban Lawns

Episode Thirty - New Music! Sudan Archives! Say She She! Aldous Harding! Arun Sood! Joel Ross!

We Heard Wonders - music review podcast from Scotland

On this week’s @weheardwonders, we engage in a spot of light hate-listening (“one of the worst songs that I can remember by a major recording artist”), before swiftly pivoting to The Good Stuff. The super-talented Sudan Archives sets up home in our heart, discodelic-soul trio Say She She leave Andrew a little hot under the collar, and Joel Ross encourages us to join him on a spiritual jazz journey. We also discuss the many voices of indie darling Aldous Harding and the fascinating inspiration behind Scottish-Indian artist Arun Sood’s Searching Erskine. A gorgeous, humane meeting-of-minds has the Vinyl Word. We’d love to know your views on the show and the tracks up for discussion (yes, including THAT one).

Aldous Harding's Designer

For The Record

As an artist, Aldous Harding could be described as a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. Her third record, although often cryptic lyrically, could be anything but. Designer is a stunningly beautiful, delicate work of pop music. Brimming with about as much light and positivity than ever heard from New Zealand’s APRA Silver Scroll recipient; a stark contrast from previous work. TRACKS PLAYED: ‘Fixture Picture’ ‘Designer’ ‘Zoo Eyes’ ‘Treasure’ ‘The Barrel’ ‘Damn’ ‘Imagining My Man’ ‘Weight Of The Planets’ ‘Heaven Is Empty’ ‘Pilot’.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Aldous Harding: Delicate, Gothic Folk (From the Archives)


Hailing from New Zealand’s Southern port town of Lyttelton, Aldous Harding digs deep into classic folk music with her acoustic-based brooding songs. Her music is utterly captivating, yet melancholy and bleak; the arrangements are delicate, simple, and elegant - with subtle harmonies, perhaps a touch of fiddle or keyboard, supporting acoustic guitar and Harding’s haunting voice. Hear the New Zealand singer-songwriter perform fragile & intense songs in the studio. Set List: "Stop your Tears"'What If Birds Aren’t Singing, They’re Screaming""Horizon"
