Gardens & Villa – “Fixations”

Gardens & Villa are a California synth-pop duo (formerly trio) made up of Chris Lynch and Adam Rasmussen, who split with their drummer Levi Hayden and left the sleepy beach haven of Santa Barbara for a warehouse in the middle of Los Angeles. After 2014’s Dunes, the band went through a lot of changes, but their sound has remained the same crystalline, post-punk/synth amalgam that initially drew us in. For their new album — brilliantly titled Music For Dogs — longtime collaborators Shane McKilop (bass) and Dustin Ineman (on percussion now) joined the duo, as well as Jacob Portrait who handled production. Listen to their new song, “Fixations,” a morass of jumpy keyboards and circuitous, deadpan hooks, below, and look for their new album in August.

Music For Dogs is out 8/21 via Secretly Canadian. Pre-order it here.
