ALBUM RELEASE // Gardens & Villa’s ‘Dunes’ Out Now, US Tour Starts Friday



Gardens & Villa‘s second album, Dunes, is out today worldwide 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.

Listen to tracks “Bullet Train” and “Colony Glen” above or here on our Soundcloud.

Dunes is now available from iTunes, Amazon, SC Distribution, and your local record store.

Early reviews on Dunes:

“Goldsworthy has built a stratum of battered, creaky atmosphere atop Gardens & Villa’s already richly layered mood”

- SLANT Magazine | ★★★★

“Ultimately, Dunes is a collection of tracks which showcases Gardens & Villa’s distinctly original twist on the well-worn and much abused genre of synth-pop. It’s fun, it’s clever and it’s mature–electro-pop for adults.”

- The Line Of Best Fit

“Compared to their debut album, Dunes marks a step up in the band’s sound.”
