Premiere: The Garden preview debut album with generous ‘Gift’

The Garden preview debut album with generous ‘Gift’

California twins prove they’re no laughing matter with a taste of ‘Haha’.

On 9th October, L.A. twins Wyatt and Fletcher Shears release their debut album as The Garden. ‘Haha’ is a showy, theatrical blast of weird pop drenched in tongue-and-cheek references, but it’s no laughing matter.

The latest song to emerge from the LP is ‘Gift’, a relentless statement of intent. “I’ll flip the system, I’ll make it mine,” they declare over flip-flopping bass lines and murky synths. Live, The Garden are an almighty spectacle, bouncing on the spot like they’re on a pair of treadmills. ‘Gift’ is the closest they’ve come so far to replicating this all-energy charm.

Premiering on DIY below, ‘Gift’ is also available immediately for anyone pre-ordering the album.
