Listing Detail Tabs

Tiny Ruins is the project of Bristol-born, New Zealand-raised musician and songwriter Hollie Fullbrook. It grew out of writing the music for fringe theatre productions whilst a student in Wellington, recording by four-track and playing at live music and poetry nights in 2007–2009. Samuel Prutton committed the first Tiny Ruins songs to record, in the form of rough demos. Tiny Ruins’ live shows began to attract attention for soul stirring, intimate performances and strange, hypnotic songs. Returning to the antipodes, the first Tiny Ruins album, Some Were Meant For Sea, was recorded in the Moyarra School Hall, South Gippsland, Australia by J Walker (CW Stoneking, Holly Throsby, Machine Translations). Fullbrook and Walker added piano, cello, violin, accordion, bells and percussion to the live guitar and vocal takes, and has been well received in New Zealand.

“From time to time an album comes along that stops you in your tracks and demands you to listen. Tiny Ruins’ Some Were Meant For Sea is one such record”. Australian press were also smitten with triple j magazine writing, ”Kiwi captures attention and hearts” and Mess & Noise noting, “the songs sway and heave with warmth and approachability”. NZ Herald

“Haunts is 6 songs long, and I emphasize the fact that this baby is a blast from the past: we’re talking late teens/early 20s material. So it’s a sort of a throwback to a time before the first album Some Were Meant for Sea. It’s us playing these older songs live in a beautiful wooden ceiling’d room in Waipu. Made with what a lot of love & care (& a startlingly small amount of tape) by Jon, Alex, Cass, myself and Simon Gooding, who mixed it with Jon and mastered it at York St.”
