Gardens & Villa Release New Single “Colony Glen” & North American Tour Starts Feb 7

Gardens & Villa Release New Single "Colony Glen"
Gardens & Villa have shared their second single, “Colony Glen. The track’s sinister synths underscore vocalist Chris Lynch’s tale of betrayal and haunting. The pulsing bass line and Lynch’s smooth tenor interplay for a moonlit electro jam.
G&V have also announced a headlining tour that kicks off February 7 in Santa Cruz. They’ll play US and Canadian major markets for a month (including Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg on Feb 25) before their return to Los Angeles at the El Rey on March 8. Their new album, Dunes, comes out on Secretly Canadian on February 4. Their first single, “Bullet Train,” is also available now on YouTube and SoundCloud.
The Santa Barbara five-piece traveled to record their latest album with Tim Goldsworthy (Cut Copy, DFA Records, Hercules & Love Affair) at Key Club, a converted locksmith’s building in Benton Harbor, MI. As a result, Dunes is a record abundant with contrasts, that shares a clear and evocative vision of where Gardens & Villa’s members have traveled, what they’ve learned, and what lies ahead.Dunes is available for pre-order now via iTunes and SCD. Pre-orders of the LP will receive limited-edition colored magenta vinyl while supplies last. A full list of tour dates, including a newly announced West Coast run at the end of March, is below.
