Tiny Ruins shares David Lynch-produced single ‘Dream Wave’

Dream Wave, the new single from New Zealand’s Tiny Ruins, comes courtesy of film director & music producer David Lynch, following a chain of events that began with the director mentioning on Twitter that he was a fan of the band.

Months later, songwriter Hollie Fullbrook was in the throes of Tiny Ruins’ first USA tour. Waking on a stranger’s floor in Boston where they’d crashed the night before, she learnt that Lynch wanted to record Dream Wave having heard a demo sent to him by Ella Yelich O’Connor, aka Lorde. When the band finished their run of shows, Fullbrook traveled to LA, met with Lynch at his Hollywood Hills studio, and Dream Wave was tracked. The result is a spooky, beautiful song, heavy with the sense of uneasy nostalgia Lynch is known for. You can listen to the track below…

Limited edition 7″ single pre-orders available now from Bella Union.

In other news, Tiny Ruins will be embarking on a European Tour next month with Hurtling Through EP collaborator Hamish Kilgour, which includes a sold out show at London’s St. Pancras Old Church. Hurtling Through was the 7-track EP Tiny Ruins recorded and produced with US-based Hamish Kilgour, of legendary New Zealand band The Clean, released last November. The EP features Fullbrook on acoustic and electric guitars, her distinctive vocals captured in a raw & natural form. Kilgour contributes on drums and an eclectic array of percussion, with guest appearances from Greg Vegas on saxophone, and Danny Tunick on bass and vibraphone. Hurtling Through is also available now from Bella Union. Dates & ticket info below:
