Discovery: Forgotten Garden

Forgotten Garden are an alternative rock duo from Inverness in Scotland whose haunting new track Jessica grabbed my attention.

By Graeme Smith

The duo consists of Danny on the instrumentals (except the drums in Jessica that come courtesy of guest Joe Ituano) and Inês who supplies the haunting vocals. The pair make beautiful music but what really captured me about Jessica was its storytelling lyrics. It tells the tale of a woman who is always in transit, trying to find inner peace after domestic trauma. The uncertain state of her mind is perfectly captured through tumultuous, bass-heavy instrumentals merging with the soft and rich vocals.

You can check out Jessica below. If you’re as entranced as I was, be sure to check out the single’s B-side Broken Pieces too. You can also find more music that’s just right on our Goldilocks playlist on Spotify. Be sure to give it a follow.
