TINY RUINS

Tiny Ruins is the project of Auckland musician & songwriter Hollie Fullbrook. Born in Bristol, England in 1985, Fullbrook learnt the cello from an early age & at 10, moved with her family to New Zealand. Teaching herself the guitar through her teens, she traveled alone in the US for a while before moving to Wellington in 2005, where she studied & wrote music for small-fry theatre productions.

Tiny Ruins was named as such when, while reading a passage in a book that mentioned ruins, a favourite song of Fullbrook's, She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain as performed by Tiny Bradshaw, played on her stereo. Sharing rough tape-recorded demos of her songs with music-minded friends, they garnered attention from beyond New Zealand's shores; in 2010, she was asked to fly to Sydney to support Scottish folksinger Alasdair Roberts, and was then duly signed by influential indie label Spunk Records.

Tiny Ruins' first album, Some Were Meant For Sea, was recorded in South Gippsland, Australia by J Walker (CW Stoneking, Holly Throsby, Machine Translations). Released in mid-2011, said the New Zealand Herald, "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 Mess & Noise noting, "the songs sway and heave with warmth and approachability". The album saw a UK release after being championed by BBC 6 and BBC 2. It was hailed by BBC World Service programme The Strand as one of the top five albums of 2011. Her new album, Brightly Painted One, came out on Bella Union in May 2014.

"The new LP from Auckland, New Zealand’s Tiny Ruins is shaping up quite beautifully. It’s called Brightly Painted One, out in May, and understated to the point that it might lay too hushed to blip above the radar. On “Carriages” and “Me at the Museum, You in the Wintergardens,” Hollie Fullbrook sings with subtle yet precise intonation, casting a dreamlike memory akin to Laura Marling’s more subdued numbers or the internal imagery of Angel Olsen’s Strange Cacti." --Twentyfourbit.com

Emily Jane White

New album Blood/Lines out now on Important Records. Blood/Lines displays loyalty to dark and somber atmospheres through bright sounds, rhythmic drive, and pop sensibility. Love, anger, and violence move through each vignette. Kinship generates complex intimacies. Love can entrap the unwary and betray the devoted.


"Cat Power is the easiest modern comparison to her melancholy balladry, but White's heroes range from PJ Harvey to Emmylou Harris to Poison Ivy of the Cramps, and the album kicks off with an ode to legendary blues queen Bessie Smith." --Rolling Stone

Dim Peaks

"Dim Peaks, the new incarnation of somber-troubador Niilo Smeds music, is deceptively, almost gleefully simple. Built almost entirely on the simple strum of the guitar and the resonating timbre of Smeds voice, the songs, initially, don’t seem to take up a huge amount of space in your sonic memory. Instead the songs wile themselves in to the dusty corners, the dust-moted streaks of sunshine, the tiny room at the top of the stairs you might find yourself lingering about one musty summer afternoon. This is the dark side of your friend at a campfire, guitar in hand, a few drinks looser than they might need to be. Dim Peaks is exactly what I want hear from a guy, a guitar, and some gorgeous lyrics – soulful, attractive music, unfettered by pretentious noodling. With the backing of former The Mallard member Dylan Tidyman-Jones (who recently released his own solo album as FRONDS), there’s a thick, palpable feeling to this music, but it never feels false or put-upon. Simply stated, Niilo Smeds and Dim Peaks are something to keep an eye on." --sideonetrackone.com
