Kaurna Cronin Reveals His Eighth Studio Album, ‘Harsh Beauty’

Multi-award winning contemporary folk artist, Kaurna Cronin has just released his much anticipated album, Harsh Beauty. Featuring previously released singles like Our Way it’s 11 tracks of evolving sound and incredible songwriting.

The eighth album in Cronin’s catalogue, Harsh Beauty  is another tick in the box for the very talented songwriter. Filled with exploration, experimental and thought provoking songwriting, it’s no wonder that Cronin has lapped up as many industry awards as he has.

“‘Harsh Beauty’ is a reflection on how our environment shapes our cultures, lives and personalities; as we leave our mark on the world – so too, do the landscapes we traverse cast themselves upon us,” Kaurna Cronin elaborates.

“Touring to many different countries and cultures, I am fascinated by how human characteristics and personality traits can be seen in parallel to the surrounding physical landscapes. It is as if we are adapting our social and political environments and aligning our language, visual aesthetics and behaviour to mimic our physical surrounds.” – Kaurna Cronin 

Harsh Beauty is a wonderful listen from start to finish with it’s heavy truths and interesting storytelling. It’s available now, everywhere.

Cronin is currently on a whopping European tour covering Germany, Poland, Finland, Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania and returns to Australian shores in October. More info is available here.
