Auckland band Tiny Ruins, led by Hollie Fullbrook, will be touring in several spots around the world in the coming months, including their native New Zealand and over here in the UK. It looks like they'll have some new material to play too, and today they have released one of their brand new tracks 'How Much', along with a captivating video.

The new track is an unflinching examination of human capacity to take stresses and strains. The song examines the frailty of human happiness, and delicately sketches various scenarios of inner-turmoil over a an atmospherically spare indie backing. In the chorus, the title is expanded into the direct question "how much would you be willing to give? How much do you take from all of this? How much before you're stranded?" It's a song that certainly leaves a mark, and suggests that seeing Tiny Ruins in their upcoming tour will be an undoubtedly memorable experience.

'How Much' comes with a video created by Charlotte Evans and filmed on location at Titirangi's beautiful Lopdell Theatre. Check it out below, and those upcoming Tiny Ruins UK tour dates are beneath.
