Forgotten Garden are a Dark Indie band (duo+guests) whose songs are generally sad and haunting. Vocals are provided by Inês whilst Danny plays most of the instruments. Although primarily an electric band they do sometimes produce acoustic material. Danny lives in the north of Scotland whilst Inês lives in her native Portugal after recently returning there from Scotland. The duo began working together in 2019.
The Broken Pieces EP that dropped in September 2020 was Forgotten Garden's first release. Claudia Mendes in her review for “The Other Side Reviews” said “Forgotten Garden takes you through four stages of a relationship breakdown on their hauntingly beautiful EP Broken Pieces. Covering you in a synth blanket, the band uses haunting lyrics, airy vocals and some rock guitar lines to paint vivid images.”
Since then Forgotten Garden have released five well received singles Jessica, Christmas Time, Bad Guy, Jessica (acoustic) and most recently Memoriam.
Sinusiodal Music said of Memoriam “Forgotten Garden has always been a master of creating powerful and moving music, and this song is no exception....It’s definitely one of my favourite indie songs.”
The music of Forgotten Garden is mostly inspired by post-punk bands such as The Cure and Joy Division. Inês's vocals are influenced by some of her favourite artists such as Florence Welch, Lana Del Rey, Chelsea Wolfe, Weyes Blood, Kelsey Lu and Warpaint. In fact, Forgotten Garden have been described as Lana Del Rey meets The Cure!!
