Following the release of her latest album ‘Designer’ last year, New Zealand songwriter Aldous Harding performed at Le Guess Who? 2019, becoming one of the audience’s highlights of the 13th edition of the festival. The show rendered instrumentation and voice into the most vivid and impressionistic of scenes.
Harding’s performance with band took place in the overwhelming setting of TivoliVredenburg’s Grand Hall, and now, we share a video of the group performing ‘Designer’ and ‘The Barrel’, both from her latest album.
