Tiny Ruins (Aotearoa New Zealand)

Friday 19th October 2018

Hot on the heels of a European tour, Tiny Ruins will showcase new material alongside favourites from their award-winning back catalogue.

Following her ‘Hurtling Through’ collaboration with The Clean's Hamish Kilgour, and ‘Dream Wave’ - a single recorded with film director David Lynch, Hollie Fullbrook returns with her spellbinding live band to bring us a new set of songs.

Tiny Ruins’ new material enters spaces more expansive and experimental than ever. Traversing early influences of folk and blues, Fullbrook’s songs are known for their unique lyrical flair and a wry humour that's at times disarmingly confessional.

Expect deftly picked guitar in alternate tunings, reminiscent of 60's folk and psychedelic pop, matched with some of the best musicians in the country.

“One of the best acts to harness the power of dark folk…Expansive, experimental and exciting.” Hhhhappy

"As a lyricist, Fullbrook is both conversational and a storyteller. But the amount of sound she’s able to get out of her guitar is what makes her mesmerising." Since I Left You

Winner Best Alternative Album - Brightly Painted One , 2014 New Zealand Music Awards

Proudly presented by the Nelson Arts Festival.
