The Garden grows a fresh new sound
Last Time Alt Philanthropy spoke to The Garden in October of 2016, member Wyatt Shears described their upcoming music for 2017 to be “something totally new and fresh”, and Shears couldn’t have been more than right. On January 31st The Garden, dropped their new song “All Access”, as a showcasing preview of what's to be expected with their upcoming EP U Want The Scoop?, which comes out on March 3rd.
“All Access” has a completely different vibe in comparison to the three hit singles The Garden released last year, titled “Call This # Now”, “Play Your Cards Right”, and “California Here We Go”. However, an evident similarity that can be drawn from listening to “All Access” for the first time is its infectious catchy lyrics and upbeat synthetic instrumentals like “Call this # Now”, that will leave your mind on a constant loop, craving to listen to the song over and over again. “All Access” seems to ironically focus on what it is essentially like to have all access, with the beginning starting off with the genuine process of striving towards the state of all access with, “This shit takes some patience forget about connects and regulations.” Moving towards a sense of melancholy and loneliness as the price to pay when it comes to acquiring all access is being “In the end you’re on your own, better cook up something good while you’re home.” The Garden also seems to utilize irony and focus on the artificiality of all those involved in the world of all access with, “All I ever hear is the same damn thing.” It seems like this world of all access is overall self consuming, and in the end will cause one to “die all access.”
Overall, “All Access” effectively previews the potential that is to be revealed on their new EP in early March, and will give The Garden fans something to look forward to. It will be interesting for fans to see how the Vada Vada style and lyrics have progressed since the release of Haha in 2015, but with just the sneak preview of “All Access”, U Want The Scoop seems like it will contain a fresh new sound that won’t leave the Vadaverse disappointed.
