West Coast provocateurs The Garden released their debut album proper via Epitaph/Burger last October, representing a youthful punk scene in California with their dirty, raw and immediate two-piece bass and drum attack. With a visceral live element that has seen them take the UK by storm, they strip off everything unnecessary about modern punk and get straight to the heart of it, consistently defying categorisation and breaking new ground with their own ‘Vada Vada’ philosophy. Watch here.
The Garden’s ferocious brand of deranged pop takes no prisoners, veering from hyperactive to damn right deranged in the thump of a bass drum. They’ve created 5 new tracks to serve as a bridge to the next chapter of their conceptual journey, which will be the follow up to 2015’s ‘Haha.’ Latest track ‘Call This # Now!’ represents a sleaziness that’s floating around in the personal world they live in and the world as a whole;
“Call This # Now!” represents all of the sleaze and slime that can surround you within business.
It represents how life can be masked, untrustworthy, and how there are several different ways you can get drawn in.
The fact of the matter is that there will be big shots everywhere and this is an example of how you can get sucked right in.
The vibe surrounding the video is grim, deceiving and uncertain, yet colorful, blissful and hopeful just how life can be. Wyatt & Fletcher Shears
