The Garden is an experimental rock duo formed by twin brothers Fletcher and Wyatt shears in 2011. They integrate a multitude of unique sounds into their albums, incorporating deep drum-and-bass, simplistic electronic beats, hip hop-like verses, and a hardcore atmospheric vibe. Despite their albums generally having a lofi, garage punk sound and many similarities, each of their songs are distinctive and catchy. In addition, their unique style if often admired, combining androgynous glam and medival jester attire. I’ve been listening to them for over 2 years now, around when their 2018 album ‘Mirror Might Steal Your Charm’ was released. The first song I heard was ‘California Here We Go’ and I was obsessed for a long while after.

My favorite albums in their discography are 'haha' and 'Mirror Might Steal Your Charm' but their 2017 EP 'U Want the Scoop?' has a few bangers! They also have a new album 'Kiss My Super Bowl Ring' which I highly recommened. My fav songs are 'No Destination', 'Clay', 'All Access', 'Cloak', and 'Vexation'. :) I REALLY want to see them live someday, hopefully they'll tour western canada?? idk? Check 'em out if you want. Maybe you'll regret it, maybe you wont.....
