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

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. Danny lives in the north of Scotland whilst Inês is currently living in 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. Claudia Mendes of The Other Side Reviews said “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”

On July 23rd 2021 Screamlite Records released a new single by Forgotten Garden entitled “Jessica”. "Jessica" is about one woman's search for inner peace after suffering domestic trauma. It was paired with “Broken Pieces” (Natural Mix) - a re-mix that previously only had very limited availability.

In December 2021 we released "Christmas Time" an acoustic song about how Christmas can bring back memories of loss from the past. This was followed by two well received singles "Bad Guy" and "Jessica (acoustic)" in 2022.

In September 2022 we released the critically acclaimed track Memoriam as a single.

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.

PRESS RELEASE - For immediate release 

“They melt like mist, the solid lands, Like clouds they shape themselves and go.” 

In Memoriam, by Alfred, Lord Tennyson 

Forgotten Garden's new Single Memoriam will be released on 2nd September 2022 

“Memoriam” is a sad and poignant Indie Rock song that takes it's inspiration from the tragic experience of those unable to comfort a loved one at their passing. This anguish is reflected in the chorus “too late to show that I cared, still cared” This situation, of course, was particularly prevalent, during the Covid lockdowns when even the attendance of funerals became problematic. Grief and loss in general permeate the song. 

The track features a strong bass line, energetic drums and a wistful synth sound that revolve around a constellation of sad, melodic guitar riffs. Soaring above all this is the melancholic and powerful voice of Inês Rebelo. Woven together, the instruments and strong vocals create a powerful Indie song that explores a tragic facet of modern life 

Forgotten Garden are an Indie band (duo+guests) with dark wave tendencies. Their songs are generally sad, poignant and haunting. Vocals are provided by Inês whilst Danny plays most of the instruments. Although primarily an electric band they do sometimes produce acoustic material. After spending many years in Scotland, Inês now lives in her native Portugal. Danny lives in the north of Scotland. They started working together in 2019. 

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. In fact, Forgotten Garden have been described as Lana Del Rey meets The Cure!!
