Gardens & Villa have been generating all sorts of buzz with their self-titled debut album, released yesterday (July 5th) via Secretly Canadian. The band hails from Southern California and is currently on tour opening for Foster The People.
The band has a West Coast sound with a little of 90s Britpop thrown into the mix, and are somewhat reminiscent of Local Natives. Gardens & Villa are putting out great psych pop/rock tunes, completely unafraid of doing their own thing, like fusing the use of synth and flutes, and we love them the more for it.
