The release of Tiny Ruins Olympic Girls album in 2019 saw Hollie Fullbrook and band spending much of last year on the road. Following the release of an 11 track solo companion to the celebrated album and a sold out full band New Zealand tour, Fullbrook then performed alone for the tail end of 2019 with an intimate, stripped back reimagining of the lush arrangements from the album. This included three weeks in North America supporting Aldous Harding, as well as 26 shows across Europe, and three Australian shows with Steve Gunn.
2019/20 has seen Lawrence Arabia careen across New Zealand and Europe in support of his critically lauded Lawrence Arabia's Single Club album, which compiled his ambitious series of crowdfunded monthly singles recorded and released throughout 2018. His most recent iteration being a solo tour entitled Single where he returned for a series of piano performances, re-imagined, alone and devoid of any buffer and/or musical safety net.
