Aldous Harding signs to 4AD

Lyttleton musician Aldous Harding has become the first Kiwi artist to sign a record deal with major British independent label 4AD.

Harding has signed with the iconic label (which has been home to Cocteau Twins, Pixies, St Vincent, Bon Iver, The National and Grimes over the years) for a three album deal.

The dreamy folk singer is currently living in Bristol for a month to make an album with legendary producer John Parish, who is best known for being PJ Harvey’s long-standing producer.

The hotly anticipated work is sure to push her in a slightly new musical direction. We can’t wait to hear what comes out of those recording sessions.

In the meantime, check out the video for her haunting track 'Horizon':
