Aldous Harding Brings Powerful, Austere Pop to Mohawk Monday 6/19

Last month, rising artist Aldous Harding released her sophomore album, Party, which has already garnered high praise from a variety of outlets. Emphasizing an austere, hushed vocal style and restrained, minimal arrangements, Harding’s gothic pop is haunting and arresting. She made waves with a powerful performance on the BBC’s Later… With Jools Holland a few weeks ago. Harding is the kind of artist that piques your interest and suddenly you’ve fallen down a rabbit hole of YouTube videos. One of those will undoubtedly be the video for Blend, which is based on the playmates scene of Apocalypse Now and features Harding in a cowboy costume similar to the one from the film, as she dances and with pistols drawn. Juxtaposed with the song’s quiet, tense pop, the imagery is utterly transfixing. Known for captivating live performances, Harding’s show at Mohawk on Monday night is a must-see event. The bill also features outstanding Austin openers Julia Lucille and Krista Van Liew. Buy your incredibly affordable tickets for the show right here, and hear music from all three artists below, including several songs from Harding.
