West Coast neo-punk twins, moonlighting models and provocateurs The Garden are set to release their new album Haha via Epitaph/Burger Records on October 9. This is the duo’s follow up to their debut LP The Life and Times of a Paperclip.
The duo represent a youthful punk scene in California with their DIY principles, thrift store-cum-glam fashion style and a list of pick ’n’ mix influences that stretch far beyond The Minutemen. Their minimalist two-piece bass and drums essence is dirty, raw and immediate, with a visceral live element that saw them sell-out their first 2 headline runs in the UK – as well as supporting Warpaint across Europe.
Fact is, The Garden – aka Wyatt and Fletcher Shears – don’t care what you think. They are the auditory invaders of the new world; borderless, informed and decentralized – Haha offers a glimpse into their breakbeat-propelled world of electro-punk anarchy.
