Five top acts have made the shortlist for the 2017 APRA Silver Scroll Award, recognising excellence in songwriting. A historic year with an all female finalist lineup, congratulations to MMF member Aldous Harding (Liv Young)
Aldous Harding (Liv Young) is the first New Zealand artist to sign to 4AD - regularly cited as the most influential indie in the world; and 'Horizon' - her first release from the forthcoming album, offers an enticing preview, Aldous wrapping her voice effortlessly around a simple three-chord skeleton with poise and at times near violent intensity.
After the international success of her self-titled debut, Aldous Harding (Liv Young) continues to ascend beyond fleeting trends. In February, ahead of the release of her next record 'Party' she’s set to play four special shows in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, leading a band of full instrumentation through new and old material.
