NEW Single Jessica has Arrived! 

 

Our new single “Jessica” is now out! It's available on Bandcamp at https://rebrand.ly/zba8shr and most streaming sites including Spotify at https://rebrand.ly/newsingle  Enjoy! :)

Jessica is a sad, haunting song in typical Forgotten Garden style. It is a meditation on one woman's search for inner peace after suffering domestic trauma. It highlight's the ongoing consequences of such trauma This is summed up in the lines from the song “now she's always drifting away, blown by the winds of yesterday”. 

The second song is a remix of Broken Pieces. This is a vulnerable and tender song that demonstrates just how strong Inês’ vocals are, with her voice moving from gentle and soft to a wonderfully passionate crescendo. The remix is called the “natural mix” as it is less produced than the original.

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

About

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 will be releasing a new single by Forgotten Garden entitled “Jessica”. This is a new song about the consequences of domestic trauma. It will be 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.
