Gardens & Villa Dunes

When Gardens & Villa released the first single from the Tim Goldsworthy-produced Dunes, “Bullet Train,” we liked it so much we made it the #1 song of the week. This next single, “Colony Glen,” picks up where that one left off, cruising through plasticine new wave pastures with falsetto lingering in its wake. If that “Sweet Dreams” synth foundation doesn’t transport you back to 1983, it will at least transport you out of your seat to dance around the room. Press play below.

  1. more like this*, please!

    * concise, focused songs with an accessible structure and solid hook. too many bands nowadays either forget that a chorus needs to be catchy, or just completely forget to put one in their songs.
