Orchestral tinged indie-pop trio The Happy Fits – Calvin Langman, Ross Monteith, and Luke Davis – have released the video for “The Garden” – CLICK HERE to watch. Originally featured on their sophomore full-length, What Could Be Better, the poignantly written cello-driven ballad follows the album’s overall exploration of themes like validation and stability, as Langman struggles to untangle the emotional knots and agonizing confusion left by his father’s imbalanced distribution of love.
The song’s touching lyrics swirl around the resentments and bewilderments that Langman uncovers as he revisits the plot of land that his father obsessively cultivated throughout his childhood. “My father often spent more time outside caring for his plants than caring for his family,” Langman explains. “It always confounded me how there could be such a beautiful, bountiful life outside our house but not inside.”
