Tiny Ruins - "Dorothy Bay"

Tiny Ruins, the musical project of New Zealand's Hollie Fullbrook, is back with a new single, "Dorothy Bay." The band's upcoming album, Ceremony, is comprised of songs making up chapters of a saga set on Tamaki Makaaurau's Manukau Harbor. "Dorothy Harbor" mixes Fullbrook's Neil Young influence with the current crop of indie rock meets indie pop musicians coming out of New Zealand and Australia these days. It's the kind of song that feels like floating, with fuzzy guitars combining with Fullbrook's vocals to create something beautiful and more than a little melancholy. As downbeat as the song can be, there is a strong bassline that adds an unexpected groove to it. This is a fascinating and captivating new single that's going to have you dying to hear the rest of the album. 

You can watch the video for "Dorothy Bay" below. Ceremony is due out April 28 on Ba Da Bing. The album can be pre-ordered here. For more on Tiny Ruins, check out the band's website.
