Psych-pop band Gardens & Villa share a video for “Everybody”

gardens and villa

Psychedelic-pop group Gardens & Villa have released a video for their Beatles’ throwback tune “Everybody,” the second single off “Music For Dogs.”

Its rolling, whimsical piano melody and marching, shuffling drum beat mimics the fluctuating sound between late-era Beatles and John Lennon’s early solo work, which keeps the tone light. By the bridge, it breaks into a progressive and whimsical piano melody that is purely vintage.
As the song builds, synth notes, piano melody and drums fall in on themselves, adding to the layered sound.

Watch the video below for “Fixations,” which takes place in a hippy LSD party, where everyone’s tripping out. Later there’s a drone-like thing on the attack and possibly an android, but it’s all a blur.

“Music For Dogs,” Gardens & Villa’s third studio album, was just released last week on Secretly Canadian. The band will head out on tour next month, with supporting acts like Palehound, De Lux, James Supercave and American Wrestlers.
