shedding her gothic mantle for a bright burst of spacious indie folk, Aldous now deals in lustrous melodies that quietly bed into your consciousness.

'Designer' finds the New Zealander hitting her creative stride. From the bold strokes of opening track ‘Fixture Picture’, there is an overriding sense of an artist confident in their work, with contributions from Huw Evans (H. Hawkline), Stephen Black (Sweet Baboo), drummer Gwion Llewelyn & violinist Clare Mactaggart broadening & complementing Harding’s rich & timeless songwriting. If you love the mystical melodica of sujan stevens, the benevolent purity of this is the kit, or the timeless vocals of Vashti bunyan or sandy denny, have a listen to this absolute beaut! “it’s easy to become swept up in this world of sustained & excruciating beauty” 8/10 – uncut.
