Gardens & Villa – “Black Hills”
Recent additions to the Secretly Canadian roster, Santa Barbara five-piece Gardens & Villa are a bunch of college friends who made pop-punk music ‘til they decided they were better at doing other stuff. Like making ethereal, Californian synth-pop.
They’ve since scored a support slot for Foster The People on their US tour, and after listening to their new track “Black Hills”, you can see why.
Woozy vocal harmonies and delicate guitar riffs overlay a cheezy synth beat, lazily driving us from the top of the hills out to the ocean shore.
Listen to the track and feel your toes scrunch into the sand.
