The Truth: GARDENING consist of Niall Rush (vox / guitar / piano), Olivia Horrox (drums), Adam Smith (guitar) and Mikey Burton (bass / vox). 'Miracles' is their third release on fierce panda, and it is taken from their debut panda EP, 'Viewfinder', which is out on November 18th and available to pre-order right now via orcd.co/gardening_viewfinderep

To coincide with that release, GARDENING headline this show here:

Every new band should have at least one furiously epic song which unwinds at its own leisurely pace. Gardening have two of them, one of which was first panda single '1977', which lasts for five minutes and 51 seconds. But not one of those seconds is wasted as the track builds and builds and builds a little bit more with the tautness of Television and the charm of Teenage Fanclub, all wrapped up in a well worn Guided By Voices t-shirt.

Second release 'Relapse' was, by any musical comparison, more economical with the musical truth, clocking in at just under four minutes. And third single 'Miracle' is even less bulky, skimming in just over the three minute mark. Following the sonic tumult of its predecessors 'Miracle' finds Gardening in reflective mode, a lilting guitar and slinky rhythm seeing the band driftwooding away downstream. "Visionary just can't seem to shake the fog / Stares out the window like a catatonic dog" sighs singer Niall, nailing his own vision to the melodic mast.

Such is intelligent, instinctive life with Gardening, where power-popping precision is everything, although not without its surprising diversions. Forming in 2019 via website ads, they accidentally became a meta-covid-generation outfit: "Because we never knew each other before the band started, we actually got a lot closer during the pandemic when we swapped out weekday rehearsals for calls, and became something of a support network for each other, which in a way I think has helped us play better together now.

"The thing that really distinguished the early stages was the fact that we always thought we'd get another person to be the singer before I realised no one we auditioned really knew what to do with the music I was writing," blushes Niall, "so I extremely reluctantly got over myself and gave it a proper go, with some (almost) gentle encouragement from the rest of the band. The odd consequence of that is a lot of our songs are some of the first songs I've ever written (so hopefully some indication that we'll continue to improve...)."

Wise words to go with the whipsmart music. Go dig the Gardening scene...
