A collaboration from BONE SOUP and Strange Yonder saw a royal flush of alternative bands at Elsewhere nightclub, including the Wax Witches (who could be perfectly described as so far out of the box that he’s in another universe) and the Gold Coast Satan-affiliated grungers White lodge.
Californian identical twins The Garden brought ‘Vada Vada’ to life the other night as apart of the launch to their latest album ‘haha’, which gets officially released on the 9th of October.
Take a genre of music, deconstruct it entirely and put it back together, then just throw that in the bin and start from scratch and you have The Garden. The boys utilized their 50’s glamour, vada lyrics and their hint of dirty two-piece drum and bass to bring a show that screamed DIY individuality that I’m sure the whole Elsey crew could relate to. I was completely wowed by how seamless and creative their transitions between songs were as well as (of course) their pertinent karate styled dance moves. The whole crowd appeared to be intransigent fans, whether that was previous to the night or just love at first sight. The twins showed a sense of urgency, power and unpredictability (namely when drummer Fletcher Shears threw himself off the stage and into the crowd). The conceptual punk rockers played favorites such as ‘Haha’, ‘All Smiles Over Here’, ‘Cloak’ and ‘Surprise!’
The boys just released a new track called ‘EGG’, check it out below:
