Forgotten Garden

Slip into a post-punk dream with Forgotten Garden’s hauntingly ethereal single, Memoriam

Forgotten Garden’s sophomore EP, ‘In Memoriam,’ brings us the single ‘Memoriam,’ a track that deftly carves its niche within the indie post-punk landscape with its distinct blend of sound and sensibility. The hauntingly ethereal vocal lines in ‘Memoriam’ find a hallowed ground between Mazzy Star, Florence Welch, and Siouxsie Sioux, imbuing the track with an arcane nuance that resonates deeply.

This unique piece strides far from indie mediocrity, propelled by the quintessential angular intensity of indie post-punk instrumentals that jangle with a monochromatic yet vibrant dynamism. ‘Memoriam’ offers enough familiarity to draw listeners in but retains them with its ingenious deviations and its gothic tribute to shoegazed post-punk.

In an era flooded with throwaway indie filler, ‘Memoriam’ stands out as a track that spectrally stays with you, proving Forgotten Garden to be a razor-sharp cut above the rest. The power of ‘Memoriam’ not only captivates but also cements Forgotten Garden’s place in the music world as pioneers with a clear and compelling artistic vision.

In Memoriam was officially released on March 29th; stream the single on Spotify.

I See Your Face: Forgotten Garden knows that it’s too late to change it now on Memoriam

Ascending with exquisite vocals that shall get you into a contemplative mood as you think about those who are gone, Forgotten Garden has just dropped an essential release that might induce a few tears on Memoriam.

Forgotten Garden is a Scotland-based indie rock band who occasionally stretches their legs and walks into an infused dark/gothic post-punk world of wonder.

Occasionally, in life, you hear a song and stand still. Your mind is wide awake with so many memories that come flooding back like a midnight storm in winter. Without a shadow of doubt, Forgotten Garden is the skilled architects of this rare moment on their latest offering called Memoriam.

Memoriam from Scotland-based indie rock band Forgotten Garden is one of the most hauntingly beautiful songs you’re likely to hear in your life. With a pure production and a sensational soundtrack that shall find you closing your tired eyes and reminiscing about all those moments you wish you could feel again, this is something rather special.

Living in the moment has never been more important than it is now.
