Gardens & Villa
Gardens & Villa is fast approaching their peak of maturity as a band. After nearly 10 years together, they are no longer the starry-eyed boys from Santa Barbara, CA who once spent weeks camping in Richard Swift’s backyard. Now situated in Los Angeles, G&V has spent the last year crafting new music together. With 4 of the original members reunited, the songs draw from the wellspring of nature, tapping into nostalgia while looking to the future. Through the flute, they give us the wind in the trees, and try to cut through the world’s paranoia and pessimism with a sword of love. Within these songs, the alchemy that conjured the melodies and mysticism of their first self-titled LP returns with a quiet vengeance, pushing even deeper into something more distilled and pure. It’s the sound of new beginnings, forged by four old friends who share a long history and a lot of love.
There's a breathe of fresh air coming from the Wasatch Mountains of Salt Lake City, Utah.
Ugly Boys - a self-proclaimed "Damn Good Pop" band, consists of five hopeless romantics that are anything but their given name. Audibly promoting positivity; these lads parallel your favorite 90's sitcom entertainer, diminishing your worries for as long as you allow like Saturday morning cartoons. Vibrant five part harmonies, retro grooves, and glittering guitar work decorates the tender style of Ugly Boys.
Formed in early 2018 as an idea over boxed wine Ugly Boys wasted no time; releasing four singles, heading out on multiple US tours, and opening for acts such as Little Dragon, BRONCHO, Com Truise, and Rooney.
Their debut EP, "Do You Like Me?" is set to come out Valentines Day 2019 and it’s sure to leave you dancing with your heart in the clouds.
