"Colony Glen" Music Video by Gardens & Villa

GV_1407Santa Barbara‘s Gardens & Villa return with their follow-up, Dunes (Secretly Canadian), which was impressively produced by Tim Goldsworthy (Cut Copy, LCD Soundsystem) at the Key Club. Its title isn’t a shocker coming from a bunch of surf-town natives but was actually inspired by the dunes of Lake Michigan that they visited while taking a break from recording.

The album is exactly what was expected: a more crystalized digital version of their signature psychedelic synth-pop. Director (and album cover artist) Hans Lo created a music video for their first single “Colony Glen” which compliments its sonics by interspersing retro camera effects dipped in neon haze:

Gardens And Villa will perform at the El Rey Theatre tomorrow Saturday, March 8th along with Jonathan Rado (of Foxygen) and Waterstrider
