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’.  Party has dazzled the critics, leading to a startling performance of ‘Horizon’ on Later… with Jools Holland (which can be viewed here). 

“Harding is nothing less than amazing – a nuanced musician, a startling writer and a presence so intense.” - The Observer *****
”Spellbinding songs.” - The Guardian ****
Party recalls Perhacs and Bunyan, Nico and Joni, but these are thoroughly modern songs – and very much Harding’s own.” - Uncut 8/10
“Understated yet charismatic, Harding has the gift of making reality seem like a very fragile and porous thing indeed.” - Q ****
“Truly captivating.” - DIY ****
“A talent at the very start of her creative life.” - Loud And Quiet (8/10)
