This year Tiny Ruins played over 80 shows in Europe and the USA with Neil Finn, Sharon Van Etten and others. They also r\featured in the likes of the New York Times, Mojo, Uncut and the BBC. Tiny Ruins' last Auckland show at the Crystal Palace theatre was a sell out, and one of the best shows of 2014. To top it all off, they won "Best Alternative Album" at the NZ Music Awards, while Hollie recently recorded a song in LA with the legendary David Lynch.
Grayson Gilmour released an incredible album this year - “Infinite Life!" - which was nominated for "Best Alternative Album" at the NZ Music Awards. His album has received wide-spread critical acclaim, including being picked for the NZ Listener best of 2014 list (along with Tiny Ruins' "Brightly Painted One" ), five stars in the NZ Herald and numerous other excellent reviews.
Yumi Zouma, are set to make a rare New Zealand appearance after playing in Iceland, touring NZ with Lorde and are rapidly becoming one of the most blogged about bands in the world.
Also joining the line up, will be Little Bark, who released her second album ”USB" (on purple vinyl) this year which has been getting strong reviews around the country (including a 4 1/2 stars in the NZ Herald), along with Fazerdaze who has just dropped a brilliant self-titled debut EP.
Last year's Flying Out "Jangle All The Way" Xmas Party featured The Verlaines with the original 1985 "Hallelujah All The Way Home" line up, Surf City, Astro Children and Trick Mammoth…for those who need to jog their memories the photos from that show are over here…it was a great night!
See you there!
