The band released their last single ‘Surprise’ via Luv Luv Luv Records. You can listen here They will be back in the UK in March for the above dates with Warpaint.
Established in in 2011 by twin brothers Wyatt and Fletcher Shears, The Garden consistently defy categorisation and continues to break ground in their self-inflicted ‘Vada Vada’ genre. They are the auditory invaders of the new world; borderless, informed and decentralised, slick sound released from constraint and old ideologies.
Their live shows are experiential, as powerful and philosophically confounding as they are glib and tricksy. There never is any time for explanations, only a sense of urgency and a rapid spiral into their parallel world. To be seduced and ensnared by mirror-image raconteurs, operating an addictive carnival ride of sound and movement that stops as abruptly as it starts, is a close approximation of The Garden experience.
Whilst drawing inspiration from a background in punk classicism, their two-piece bass and drums essence is dirty, raw and very immediate, infusing elements of 90s hip hop and big beat electronica for un-distilled fury. They are an acidic concoction; unstable, sexy and toxic .
