Forgotten Garden's new Single “CHRISTMAS TIME” will be released on 6 December 2021 

There is another another side to Christmas. A darker side. This is the stuff of Christmas ghost stories perhaps most famously “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens. Although “Christmas Time”, our new single which will be released on 6 December, isn't a ghost story per se, it is the story of how memories from the past can return to haunt you at Christmas. In the song Christmas becomes the milestone of a tragedy. The stark and poetic lyrics remind us of how this can come to pass. 

The new single takes a different view of Christmas to most of the other songs that we hear at Noel. We like to take alternative views on things and this release is no different. One blogger has already described “Christmas Time” as a “Lovely track with great vocal melodies and progressions. I really enjoyed the concept this song brings out, beautiful! The vocals were really good and the production is really well done”. 

“Christmas Time” is available to pre-save on Spotify by going to Enjoy!

Forgotten Garden takes you through four stages of a relationship breakdown on their hauntingly beautiful EP Broken Pieces. Covering you in a synth blanket, the band uses haunting lyrics, airy vocals and some rock guitar lines to paint vivid images.” - Claudia Mendes

The Other Side Reviews


Forgotten Garden are an Indie Rock band (duo+guests) with dark/gothic post-punk tendencies. Occasionally they also wander from the path of post-punk righteousness into more acoustic territory. The haunting vocals are provided by Inês whilst Danny plays most of the instruments. Both live in the north of Scotland although Inês originally comes from Portugal. They started working together in 2019.

The Broken Pieces EP that dropped in September 2020 was Forgotten Garden's first release. It contains four tracks based around the theme of a relationship breakdown. On July 23rd 2021 Screamlite Records releasind a new single by Forgotten Garden entitled “Jessica”. This is a new song about the consequences of domestic trauma. It was paired with “Broken Pieces” (Natural Mix) - a re-mix that previously only had very limited availability.

The music of Forgotten Garden is mostly inspired by post-punk bands such as The Cure and Joy Division and earlier bands like The Doors. Inês's vocals are influenced by some of her favourite artists like Florence Welch, Lana Del Rey, Chelsea Wolfe, Weyes Blood, Kelsey Lu and Warpaint.
