Following her ‘Hurtling Through’ collaboration with The Clean's Hamish Kilgour, and ‘Dream Wave’, a 7" single recorded with film director David Lynch, Hollie Fullbrook returns with her spellbinding live band to bring a new set of songs to some of the most intimate and celebrated venues in the land.
Laying the groundwork for the release of their third album, now in its final stages of recording, the four-piece will be visiting small towns and big cities alike, showcasing new material alongside favourites from their award-winning back catalogue Some Were Meant for Sea, Haunts, Brightly Painted One & Hurtling Through.
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 60s folk and psychedelic pop, matched with some of the best musicians in the country (Freer, Basil & Healy). Don’t miss out - tickets to all shows are limited.
