I’m not even going to comment on the fact that this perfectly fine video for a generally great song is produced by Urban Outfitters. Wait. Shit. Forget I said that. Watch Beach Fossils. It really shouldn’t matter. From their What A Pleasure EP. Directed by Ian Perlman.
I first noticed Gardens & Villa when their weirdo-funk track, “Orange Blossom” landed on Baltimore-based Pasta Primavera’s Winter Chain Mix. It’s a fun track, but I’m even more excited to hear this Santa Barbara-based band’s debut after hearing and seeing the video for “Black Hills.” Gone is the funk of “Orange Blossom,” and in is a catchy synthesized bassline that perfectly ballances the song’s falsetto vocals. I like the call and response of the chorus as well.
