ASFTD #210: The Death of Pop – Gardens

Who are they?: 

They’re The Death of Pop and they come from Bournemouth.  They have one single, one EP and two LP’s under their belts thus far and have one more single on the way.

What does the track sound like?:

The band are described online under a number of different genres, the most notable being that they’ve pioneered ‘Jangle-gaze’. To me, they sound like they’ve slipped out from the whole shoegaze period that took place during the 90’s.  ‘Gardens’ is happy and danceable and pretty bloody catchy.

When is the next release?: 

This song is the next release. ‘Gardens’ will be released on a 7″ vinyl via Too Pure on October 23rd.

Where can you see them live?: 

Currently, you can’t. Having had a brief look through their social media however, it seems that the band do tend to play fairly often.

Why should you listen to it? (the PR bit):

Recorded in a smoke stained bedroom studio in a dilapidated seaside town on the south coast and mastered for plastic in the same room as Ed Sheeran’s ‘plus’. The Death of Pop and Too Pure are proud to present their newest singing disk ‘Gardens’ and ‘Only Now’ . Two brand new songs continue in the same hazy DIY vein that has become synonymous with the band through their critically acclaimed 2014 EP Fifths (Art is Hard) and their hot cake compilation ‘Runts’ (Discos De Kirlan). The songs reflect the dismal summers and repulsive sea breeze of a forgotten seaside wonderland through a broken mirror of 90’s shoegaze, 80’s synthpop, paisley underground and sunshine pop.
