Aldous Harding - "Hunter" Video
The gorgeously hushed folk of Aldous Harding has it feeling somewhat like RSTB's beginnings around here, echoing the off-kilter folk boom of the early 2000's that popped up here with such a frequency. Hannah Harding, who performs under the stage name Aldous, has an idiosyncratic croon that's bound to net her a few comparisons to Joanna Newsom but rather reminds me of Orion Rigel Dommiesse, albeit with a much more country lilt and a fuller sound to the whole affair. This debut track from her eponymous album feels like a traditional song given a full breath, swelling around her wispy voice with the full force of a country troupe playing with a soul they let leak through the strings.
