Tiny Ruins on tour now!

Quite possibly the most beautiful debut of the year, Tiny Ruins’ Some Were Meant For Sea will be released in Aus on Friday July 1. Recorded by J.Walker (Machine Translations), it’s a total heartbreaker of an album, hanging the slightest sounds of cello & guitar against Hollie Fullbrook’s timeless vocal. Over the past year, Hollie has visited Aus as guest to Joanna Newsom’s 2011 tour & Holly Throsby’s Team tour, & this July, she returns to play her own national album launches, with full dates via her website, inc. Bris, Melb, Sydney, Adelaide & Perth performances.
