Listen: Tiny Ruins - Me at the Museum, You in the Wintergardens


Originally the solo project of Hollie Fullbrook, Tiny Ruins has now expanded to be a full band with the addition of a stunning rhythm section consisting of bassist Cass Basil and drummer Alexander Freer (Artisan Guns/Cool Rainbows/The Eversons).

On Me at the Museum, You at the Wintergardens (which you can hear via the Soundcloud widget above), Tiny Ruins delivers her trademark delicately mannered and poetic vocals over intricate finger picking. But now that sound is fleshed out subtly, with percussion, brass and strings. Listen to the shimmering, echoing background sounds fade in at 0.49”. They’re ghostly and low in the mix, and all the more haunting for it. Having recorded with engineer Tom Healy over several months in Auckland studio The Lab, the song is the lead single from her forthcoming album Brightly Painted One. Now signed to the UK label Bella Union, Tiny Ruins have joined a stable consisting of Beach House, the Flaming Lips and Fleet Foxes. Pretty amazing company, nice one Hollie!
