The songs of Tiny Ruins have been treasured by crowds and critics for almost a decade. Hollie Fullbrook and her band span delicate folk, lustrous dream pop and ebullient psychedelia.
Born in Bristol and raised in West Auckland, Fullbrook’s debut LP was quickly celebrated and she took to the road to tour extensively through the UK, Europe and North America – a passage repeated many times since.
Second album won Best Alternative Album at the New Zealand Music Awards. “An album of quiet, devastating beauty,” wrote Pop Matters.
Third album, Olympic Girls, led Grant Smithies to write: “I had to pick my jaw up off the floor. Clustered around more introspective passages are gnarlier phrases that give her work its buzzy voltage: arresting visual images, weird associations, daisy-chains of telling detail.”
A group renowned for their electric dynamic live on stage, Tiny Ruins have played across countless cities and states with Sharon van Etten, Calexico, the Handsome Family and more.
“Fullbrook’s hushed yet forceful songs, packed with obsessives and resilient loners, demand your full attention.” — Q Magazine
