“Gardenback are three-piece band from Oldham, consisting of Ellis James, Neil James and Jacob James, who create psychedelic influenced anthemic garage rock. With a noisy guitar, melodic bass and powerful drums, they reflect upon what they know best; ambition, frustration and ultimately disappointment.”

Even The Stars: http://www.eventhestars.co.uk/2018/01/dantevilles-hello-operator-gardenback.html?m=0 “They’re a band we hadn’t heard of before, but who really impressed us.” Northern Alive: https://northernalive.wordpress.com/2018/01/28/lucoo-live-27-01-18/#more-1278 “The trio’s song Bulldog is particularly ear catching and includes a mixture of fierce, warped riffs with chanting vocals.” Music and Gigs: https://www.musicandgigs.co.uk/single-post/2018/01/31/LIVE-LuCoo-Live-All-Dayer-in-Manchester  


Our latest single ‘Bulldogs’ is out NOW on Spotify, Apple Music and Soundcloud.

Bulldogs started life a few years ago as a response to an EDL march in our hometown of Oldham. This response found itself within this distorted and driving song, made with an aggressive energy parodying the behaviour of these ‘British Bulldogs

Recorded at Voltalab Studios, produced and mixed by Jamie Alsop, Mastered by Pete Maher.

“As distinctive and as bruising as the name would suggest, Bulldogs, as a song for the new generation, can prove to be as iconic to the Manchester music scene as its namesake is to this fair island of ours..” – Emerging North

A rapid, dirty bassline fits perfectly beneath the roaring vocals and gritty riffs. “B-U-L-L-D-O-G!” gives an added bonus to a live set, as you can imagine the crowd chanting along to the bruising track. – Tara Lou, GIGSoup

Gigslutz – “Debut Single ‘Sleepless/Call It A Phase’ is a massive, real statement of intent’; psychedelic baggy beats meshed with a monster chorus, this is noisy, anthemic garage rock n roll of supreme quality”

The Revue – “Gardenback so far seem to be blazing their own trail in the indie rock arena and we could easily see them be the next UK band we are excited to see at an upcoming SXSW festival”

Little Indie Blogs “feisty garage rocker of a new track – ‘Sleepless’”

Turnupthatvolume – “A captivating wall-of-guitar monster fueled with vehement vocals and a hammering rhythm section. This three-piece’s heated intensity will fuel your engine instantly. Top!”
