Aldous Harding - New Video For 'Zoo Eyes' And Worldwide Tour Dates
Aldous Harding : New Video For 'Zoo Eyes' And Worldwide Tour Dates
8th October 2019

Today, Aldous Harding shares a hypnogogic video for ‘Zoo Eyes’, the third and final single from her latest album, Designer.

Filmed in her native New Zealand by ‘The Barrel’ director Martin Sagadin, Harding simultaneously compels and bewilders in ‘Zoo Eyes’ as she takes on multiple identities.  

Watch 'Zoo Eyes' here.

Watch the videos for Designer singles ‘The Barrel’, directed by Martin Sagadin and Aldous Harding, and ‘Fixture Picture’, directed by Jack Whiteley and Aldous Harding.

The New Zealander’s third album, Designer, was released earlier this year to widespread critical praise.  After the sleeper success of Party (internationally lauded and crowned Rough Trade Shop’s Album of 2017), Harding reunited with John Parish, producer of Party, and spent three weeks recording and mixing Designer in Monmouth and Bristol, England. 

'Designer' is available to buy on limited gold vinyl, black vinyl, CD and streaming everywhere here.

Aldous Harding was recently awarded a prestigious Silver Scroll Award for ‘The Barrel’ (the New Zealand equivalent of the Ivor Novellos) and has been nominated in the Solo Artist category in this year’s Q Awards.
