ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Gardens & Villa ‘Dunes’ Out February 4th, 2014, Share New Single “Bullet Train”

Gardens & Villa announced today that their second album, Dunes, will be released February 4 on Secretly Canadian.

The five members of the band, Adam Rasmussen, Chris Lynch, Dusty Ineman, Levi Hayden and Shane McKillop, left their hometown and base of sunny Santa Barbara to record with Tim Goldsworthy (Cut Copy, DFA Records, Hercules & Love Affair) at Key Club, a converted locksmith’s building in Benton Harbor, MI. Ripped out of their usual environment into a cold midwestern locale, the band finds a new voice on Dunes. The band brings their catchy rhythms and bold synth lines from previous records but continues developing a richer sound now experimenting with unique gear including Sly Stone‘s custom-built Flickinger recording console and direction from Goldsworthy.

Get out of your chair, on your feet, and hear their new lead single “Bullet Train” that includes what Stereogum calls “the catchiest flute hook I’ve heard since I honestly can’t remember” above, on YouTube, or on our Soundcloud.
