Gothic folk artist Aldous Harding is about to start a tour of New Zealand - and Australia, Europe and the UK.
The singer, from Lyttelton, who cites 60s-era folk singers Vashti Bunyan and Linda Perhac among her influences, worked with Ben Edwards of Lyttelton Records and Marlon Williams to put out her debut album.
Since then, she has played overseas festivals and toured with fellow Kiwi artists Tiny Ruins, Perfume Genius and Laura Jean.
