Aldous Harding stunned End Of The Road into silence

01 September 2017, 17:59 | Written by Laurence Day

New Zealand's Aldous Harding dropped almost every jaw during her set at the Big Top at End Of The Road Festival.

The 4AD-signed singer/songwriter played a spine-tingling collection of songs from recent label debut Party and her self-titled debut proper with little fanfare. Backed by sparse electronics and synthetic beats, the guitarist conjured immense waves of emotion - with those in attendence awed to the extent you could hear a pin drop - preferring to let the music speak for itself. When the cathartic noises stop, the crowd explodes into applause and a cavalcade of whoops; although muted, the Big Top is evidently impressed.

End Of The Road 2017 continues tonight with a headline set from Mac DeMarco on the Woods Stage.
