24 Hour Blogathon : Garden Heart - New Waves
There are many different ways in which we discover new music, but probably still our favourite is by the old traditional method of going to watch a band live and coming across a support band that surprise and delight. This is how Garden Heart come to make an appearance on Breaking More Waves, having caught the Brighton based group supporting new Breaking More Waves favourites Fickle Friends at a hometown show just over 24 hours ago.
Garden Heart are 3 girls and 2 boys who confuse and delight in equal measure. At times they seem like the indie version of The Staves with pretty harmonies a plenty at other times it seems like they want to be an out and out rock act, or a folk act or a pop band or a cool indie kids. It’s that lack of cohesion in their songs that marks them a possibility rather than the real deal at this stage. However, there’s no doubt that Garden Heart can sing (take a look at this acoustic cover of All I Want by Kodaline) and Water (streaming below) has a rip rollicking stomp that would work on any small stage at a festival this summer.
