LISTEN // Gardens & Villa’s ‘Music For Dogs’ Now Streaming On Noisey, Album Out Aug. 21st

Gardens & Villa’s new album, Music For Dogs, is now streaming via Noisey. It’ll be up until the record’s release next Friday, August 21st via Secretly Canadian. And if you haven’t yet watched Maximize, a short film about the band’s new record by director David Del Sur and cinematographer SL Perlin, please do so above!

“We thought the label would drop us.. Our girlfriends dropped us. Our drummer of six years left. We were broke and we sort of came home with a feeling of “is this the end?” That’s when Adam and I decided to move to LA and give it one last hurrah. We felt like we wanted to go out with a bang and make the album we always wanted to make! For us and for the sake of love and fun. We immediately started recording demos and sent them to our label desperately hoping they would finance us and give us another chance. I remember when we showed them the demos of Everybody” and “Fixations” and they kind of freaked out. We wanted to redeem ourselves and everything sort of fell into place! We discovered a lot and fell back in love with the craft. We tracked most of the record live, to tape (like our first LP), and did almost all of it in seven days. So happy to get it out there.”
Chris Lynch (of Gardens & Villa)

“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.”
