“Their refined blend of yearning bedsit indie pop and sleek 80s soul is meticulously smooth.”

The Guardian

“reminiscent of Beach House’s darkly quixotic work, saturated with fragility and painful longing.”

Pitchfork

“Shades of The xx and a softer Grimes while sounding more interesting than your regular synth pop clones.”

NME

US tour dates start October 9th in DC. Rest of the dates including festivals across Europe can be found 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.

If you haven’t already, pick up the new album Dunes from iTunes, Amazon, SC Distribution, or your local record store.

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.
