Dance & Drift with Gardens & Villa
The California based Gardens & Villa have always had this underlying electronic influence in their music, even though they’re often labeled as a band with folk influences (see flute solo below), and that aspect is pushed even further on the latest single released from the band. There’s a natural groove to the song, fitting perfectly with the high pitch of the vocals on the tune. Their new record is titled Dunes, and it’s going to see a February 4th release from Secretly Canadian. This is like a less-pretentious version of what Arcade Fire seems to be doing…which in the end makes it pretty enjoyable. I’m going to enjoy this jam for the rest of the day.
