Northern Alive’s review from supporting Scarlet. at the castle hotel in Manchester.
Scarlet. | Live at The Castle | 08/02/18
‘Main support of the night came from local band Gardenback. After only hearing their material online, I was thrilled to finally see them and they didn’t disappoint. Opening the set with Motorway, the band played hit after hit which both old and new fans seemed to love. The highlight of the set for me was the track, Health and Wellbeing. The song sports an addictive, punk bassline coupled with vocals reminemcent of the Dead Kennedy’s, you couldn’t help but dance to their ever-growing beat. Playing crowd pleasers such as Bull Dogsand Sleepless, Gardenback brought their driving set to a close with Bury Me. The track showed the band’s more gentle and melodic side before it progressed into a sound I was more familiar with- lead bass lines with attitude, along with a powerful drum beat and reverberating guitar chords. You can listen to their hypnotic, garage sound here.’

“They’re a band we hadn’t heard of before, but who really impressed us.”

“The trio’s song Bulldog is particularly ear catching and includes a mixture of fierce, warped riffs with chanting vocals.”

“Back in July we went to Gardenback’s debut single launch gig at Jimmy’s and what a show they put on!
Now the trio are back with a brand new track ‘Bulldogs’. 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. We spoke to the lads about their “music for the anxious loner” and what they’ve got in store as the year comes to a close.”

BOOM! : Gardenback ‘Bulldogs’
Huge thanks for Emerging North for our first review on our latest single ‘Bulldogs’
“The crys of ” you bark like a bulldog!” and “B-U-L-L-D-O-G!” imply that Bulldog has all the attributes of being a big fan favourite whenever Gardenback take to the stage.”

“Gardenback’s set never let you sit still, no matter how much you wanted to because of the sweat box venue we were in. From their new mesmerizing songs to their killer covers (“Psycho Killer” by Talking Heads and “Temptation” by New Order for their encore), it is easy to say they stole the show with their passionate playing, constant energy and an overall tight set. “
Listen in tonight to Trafford Sound as we’ll be on the Live and Local show sometime between 8-10pm playing a couple of tracks acoustic and chatting about upcoming gigs and plans.
Big thanks to turn up that volume for their kind words on ‘Sleepless’
“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!”
