Garden City Movement
Garden City Movement have signed to Night Time Stories - Late Night Tales’ sister label for original artist releases - releasing single ‘Slightly All The Time’ and plan a debut album release in 2018.
The trio of Roy Avital, Yoav Saar and Johnny Sharoni produce a blend of sounds drawn from their diverse cultural worlds; ranging from art-pop to experimental house to horizontally aligned vibes. Since surfacing at the close of 2013 with their breakout track ‘Move On’, Garden City Movement have released ‘Entertainment’ and ‘Bengali Cinema’ EPs, the ‘Modern West’ 12” in collaboration with The Vinyl Factory, climbed the Hype Machine Popular Chart with multiple singles, recorded live sessions for Boiler Room, Majestic Casual and FACT, opened for Bonobo, Caribou, Alt-J and played all over the world. The band's music video for ‘Move On’ received a nomination for Best Music Video at the LA Film Festival, won “Best Video of The Year” at the MTV Israel Music Awards and the video for ‘She’s So Untouchable’ screened at the Raindance Film Festival in London this September.
The signing comes with the release of a new single, ‘Slightly All The Time’, a combination of dream-like vocals, languid beats and deftly deployed guitar hooks. The bittersweet music balances the song’s account of abuse committed during the breakdown of a fading relationship. This melancholic fusion hints at an emotional and confessional album filled with forward facing sounds and beats.
