Last month, we spoke to Gardens & Villa about their third record, Music For Dogs, as they lean away from their previous dance-pop Dunes for a more psych and synth-rock effort. The duo was inspired by the urban decay in their new Los Angeles warehouse residency and our technology-driven lives that have become a sci-fi reality. We’ve already heard “Fixations” and “Everything,” and now the whole album is streaming a week before its release. Music For Dogs might be the band’s best LP yet. They’ve embraced a more organic sound and delivered a record that reflects a year of heartache and life changes. Band member Chris Lynch spoke about the new release to Noisey:
This is sort of re-awakening record. Getting real with ourselves. Returning to our roots. Falling in love with guitars and pianos and voices again. Feeling too connected and yet at the end of the day, disconnected from everything/everyone.
