Party is Harding’s second studio album and 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.  Featuring the singles ‘Horizon’, ‘Imagining My Man’ and ‘Blend’, Party has dazzled the critics and was recently crowned Rough Trade Shops’ Album of the Year.  Watch her stunning live rendition of ‘Horizon’ with John Parish on Later... with Jools Holland here and a 3-song NPR Tiny Desk Session with Invisible Familiars below.
