Gardens & Villa has a new video for “Black Hills” off their recently released self-titled LP and, in a way, it reminds me a bit of E.T. You have the young kid on a bike with a foreign object in the basket. He’s being chased by the enemy, which in this case is a few crazy blokes in a pick-up truck. But unlike the Spielberg flick, this one is much more artsy. Typical, of course, for a music video; the concept is anything but and definitely worth a view or two.
Gardens & Villa’s music is a great blend of dreamy and psychedelic. “Black Hills” is somewhere in between artists like Suuns, whose heavy beats are dominating, and Here We Go Magic, whose music is soft and subtle. “Black Hills” is off Gardens & Villa’s new self-titled LP, out now on Secretly Canadian.
