Aldous Harding Shares New Animated Video for “Tick Tock”

May 03, 2022

New Zealand singer/songwriter Aldous Harding released a new album, Warm Chris, in March via 4AD. Now she has shared an animated video for the album’s “Tick Tock.” Harding co-directed the quirky video with animator Chris McD. Watch it below, followed by Harding’s previously announced upcoming tour dates, including some North American shows that start next month.

When Warm Chris was announced Harding shared its first single, “Lawn,” via a video for it also co-directed by Harding and Sagadin. “Lawn” was one of our Songs of the Week. Then she shared its second single, the horn- and piano-backed “Fever,” via a video for it. “Fever” also made our Songs of the Week. When the album was released, album track “Tick Tock” also got a spot on our Songs of the Week list.

Warm Chris is the follow-up to 2019’s Designer. Harding once again partnered with producer John Parish, who also worked on Designer and 2017’s Party. The album was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales. Warm Chris also features H. Hawkline, Seb Rochford, Gavin Fitzjohn, John and Hopey Parish, and Jason Williamson (Sleaford Mods).

Last June Harding shared the new song, “Old Peel,” via a video for it. That song is not featured on Warm Chris.
