Gardens & Villa. Band. Santa Barbara.

Song: Black Hills
*single tear

Song: Star Fire Power
Gardens & Villa is the project of college friends Chris Lynch, Adam Rasmussen, Levi Hayden, and Shane McKillop who formed in 2008 following the collapse of a noisier post-punk band and a hitch-hiking journey up the west coast. Their name is pulled from the location of their house on Villa Street, the music they make is connected to coastal city they call home - stoney bike rides + dance parties... the band refers to this Santa Barbara feeling as "coco vibes." For two weeks in the summer of 2010, the band camped behind visionary and now-labelmate Richard Swift's Oregon studio. Soon after they added member Dusty Ineman to supremely execute the live incarnation of the band.
