Gardens & Villa

Gardens & Villa are a band from Santa Barbara, California. Members Adam Rasmussen, Chris Lynch, Dusty Ineman, Levi Hayden and Shane McKillop craft lush, beat-driven music full of creative pop harmonies and featuring unique instrumentation — with prominent synths, tastefully effect-laden bass, and memorable lead melodies played on flute. With these quirks, Gardens & Villa seem to have tapped into something special, producing some of the catchiest, most danceable pop music that we’ve heard in a while.

Featured song: “Echosassy”
