This band is amazing – do yourself a favor and check them out. They’ll be here at the High Noon Saloon on 3/29

“Charming, bouncy alt-pop, like old psychedelic Nuggets gems given an electropop work-over”-TIME OUT NY

“The sparse but tight production, relying mostly on fat synthesizers and drum machines with a few twists here and there, dispenses a lighthearted Britpop vibe while also recalling early-’80s R&B… Wide eyed and fresh-faced, Gardens & Villa takes on the natural world with relish” -NPR

“Immediately intoxicating” -NYLON

“Ideal for summertime strolls through a cemetery” -PITCHFORK

“Gardens & Villa may spend a lot of time outdoors, but they’re probably listening to Human League on headphones as they tiptoe through the thorns” -BLURT MAGAZINE

Following a quick run of headlining dates in their native state of California, Gardens & Villa will embark on a full North American tour that will include dates with both The Shins and Fanfarlo as well as stops at some of some of the most prestigious music festivals around. They are scheduled to perform at both weekends of the Coachella Music Festival, as well as dates at South by Southwest, 35 Denton Fest, Snowball Festival, and just announced today, the Sasquatch Music Festival in Washington state.

Gardens & Villa have spent the last month in residence in Portland, OR working on new material. So expect to hear some new tunes at these upcoming live dates. For more on their time in Portland, read the Portland Mercury’s recent interview with them. You can also stream a new live session for HeyReverb’s Mile Marker Series right HERE.
