We released Gardens & Villa‘s new album Dunes in February and today the band shares a new retro video for single “Domino”. The video, directed by Robert Beatty, brings the 80′s-inspired visual elements to the forefront matching the song’s dynamic feel. You can watch the video above or here on YouTube.
After touring with Tycho in North America and Broken Bells in Europe, Gardens & Villa kick off their summer tour in Las Vegas on July 23rd. See all dates and ticket links below.
We released Gardens & Villa‘s new album Dunes in February and today the band shared a remix of “Colony Glen” by Dead Oceans artist Mark McGuire [of Emeralds] via CLASH in the UK. Mark brings a spring tinge to their wintry track reminding us that sometime soon better temperatures are coming.
The band finishes up their European dates this week after a lengthy tour supporting Broken Bells and headlining shows in the last week. Starting next Tuesday in Vermont the band is back traveling across the US, this time with compatriot Tycho [Ghostly]. Just announced yesterday the band plays the Outside Lands festival in San Francisco‘s Golden Gate Park this August with more info here.

If you missed it, Gardens & Villa‘s second album, Dunes came out a few weeks ago. The boys already graced us with a deadpan, VHS tinted video for “Bullet Train” via director Tony Katai, and today they share a new video for “Colony Glen”, the second song to get the video treatment from G&V’s newest album Dunes. This second 80′s inspired video is directed by Hans Lo who also created the band’s artwork for Dunes.
On tour now supporting the new release, the boys have just announced additional shows including their first 2014 European dates supporting Broken Bells in London, Paris, Brussels, Berlin, and Amsterdam. Click read more below to see all tour dates and ticket links.
