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. 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. 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

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 

TAKE ANOTHER STROLL IN THE FORGOTTEN GARDEN 

New Single JESSICA (ACOUSTIC) will be released on 8th April 2022 

Soundcloud link: Jessica (acoustic) 

In the Highlands of Scotland, amongst the hills and glens, something has been growing in the Forgotten Garden. On April 8th it will finally be released into the wilds. It is Forgotten Garden's new single - the acoustic version of Jessica! 

Jessica (acoustic) 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 seeks to highlight the fact that traumas of this nature will often affect the mental state of victims, in some form, for life. This is summed up in the lines from the song “now she's always drifting away, blown by the winds of yesterday.” 

This was a tough song for Inês to sing but with great persistence she came up with her usual superlative performance. Her haunting vocals are complemented by Danny's wistful acoustic guitar and the melancholy violin and cello of the Severnduo. 

Forgotten Garden are an Indie band (duo+guests) with dark wave tendencies. Their songs are generally sad, dark 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. Both Inês and Danny live in the north of Scotland although Inês comes from a far sunnier place – Portugal! 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!!
