Tiny Ruins

Tiny Ruins are a band based in Auckland, New Zealand. Conceived in 2009 by songwriter Hollie Fullbrook to describe her solo output, the group now includes Cass Basil on bass, Alex Freer on drums & Tom Healy on electric guitar. Traversing early influences of folk and blues, Tiny Ruins' sound draws on ethereal and grungy soundscapes alike. Sometimes likened to Nick Drake, Mazzy Star or Nico, Fullbrook’s voice and guitar work evades cliché, making use of alternate tunings by way of her own self-styled fingerpicking. Lyrically one of a kind, stories are laced with a dark humour that is at times disarmingly confessional, at others, cryptic and philosophical.

Tiny Ruins have undertaken several international headlining tours, both in a solo capacity and as a band, opening for Calexico on their 2013 Australasian tour, Sharon Van Etten across the USA in 2014, and an eclectic array of opening slots, from Beach House, Joanna Newsom and Father John Misty to Neil Finn, Ryan Adams and Leon Bridges.
Most recently, Fullbrook has collaborated with renowned filmmaker David Lynch on spellbinding track 'Dream Wave', as well as a project with drummer Hamish Kilgour of The Clean. Their EP Hurtling Through was recorded in Brooklyn with producer Gary Olson, and features two poems by W.B.Yeats set to music. The band have recently finished their third album, due for release in the coming months. And we are more than ready for it, as the elegant melancholy of songs like 'Carriages' and the barren beauty of 'Wandering Aengus' gives us goosebumps still. In September Tiny Ruins will come to Germany for three shows.
