“The band’s first release sounds anything but; the four tracks zing with gorgeous pop lines accompanied by folk, rock and dream pop tones, whilst Ines’ vocals turn chameleon like from ethereal to earthy in a heartbeat” - Jane Ireland
Forgotten Garden are an Indie Rock band with gothic post-punk tendencies. The haunting vocals are provided by Inês whilst Danny plays most of the instruments. Both live in the north of Scotland although Inês comes from Portugal. They started working together in 2019.
The Broken Pieces EP that dropped in September 2020 is Forgotten Garden's first release. It contains four tracks based around the theme of a relationship breakdown.
The music of Forgotten Garden is mostly inspired by post-punk bands like The Cure, Joy Division, The Smiths and their predecessors The Doors.
“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
