“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.
We were played again on BBC introducing Manchester on Michelle Hussey’s show.

Sleepless got its first BBC air play on BBC Radio Manchester’s Introducing programme Michelle Hussey and Natalie-Eve Williams. Listen again – Saturday 1st April 2017.
Köln based writer, Savannah has written a short piece for the release of our new single.
The grungy guitar riff of Sleepless instantly reels you in as it welcomes you to a sound that you have never heard before. Gardenback simultaneously comes in together with a loud bang that creates a track that will have you listening on repeat all weekend. Ellis James’ edgy vocals perfectly coincide with his melodic bass lines as he sings the anthemic chorus:
“I wish I was someone you could love.”

Gardenback join fellow local band Cabbage on The Revue weekend Showcase.
The Weekend Showcase 3.11 edition has decidedly international flavor with three-fifths of the artists coming from outside the USA. Fifty-two songs occupy the mega-playlist, and the artists represent 14 countries.
