Like many of you lovely listeners, I fell in love with Gardens & Villa within 5 seconds of the pulsating synth line from the first track Black Hills on their debut album in 2011. Â One part electro a la FischerspoonerÂ and one part Beatles-esque harmonies and innovativeÂ chord progressions. Â As we all figured they would, Gardens & Villa quickly became crossover darlings, and their driving, moody numbers are enjoyed equally by indie rock head-nodders and electronic hip-shakers alike.
Newest track Fixations takes the fork in the road towards sunny pop and harmony reverb, just in time for your backyard barbecues and competitive softball leagues this summer. Â Check it out below and get yourself the clear vinyl bundle after the ‘buy’ link. Â It comes with a zine and playing cards! Â Ante up or shut up.
