New Zealand band Tiny Ruins from Auckland play two North dates in Elgin and Inverness in May.
Singer Hollie Fullbrook came up with the name in 2009 for her solo work, but the group went on to include includesCass Basil on bass, Alex Freer on drums and Tom Healy on electric guitar.
Tiny Ruins' debut Some Were Meant For Sea was released in 2011 and saw critical praise confirmed when it was voted 2011's album of the year by BBC World Service arts and culture programme World Of Music and was a finalist for New Zealand's Taite Prize in 2012. Tours of New Zealand, Australia and Europe followed with Hollie solo, then later a duo with the line-up's current bassist.
The North dates are at The Drouthy Cobbler, Elgin, on Thursday, May 12 and Eden Court, Inverness, on Friday, May 13.
Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday the 4th of March from www.beyondpresents.co.uk; www.ticketmaster.co.uk, www.seetickets.com, www.billetto.co.uk, www.eden-court.co.uk and in person from the Drouthy Cobbler, Ticket Scotland and Ripping.
