Golden Gardens

Two morose souls making music for ghosts and other shadowy spectres.

We come to you across the forest with messages of alchemy and wisdom.

Told in song, such high and mystic things.....

"Undeniably enchanting and mythical soundscapes ... incredibly dreamy." - KEXP

"The Seattle-based duo’s dreamy, dark, ethereal pop would provide the perfect backdrop for [David] Lynch’s noirish scenes of mysterious goings-on in the dank forests of the Pacific Northwest" - The Seattle Times

"Seattle's premier goth-gaze-techno outfit... The trio seemed to have been beamed in from a European metropolis circa 1989, blurring elements of Durutti Column, Cranes, and '90s German techno from the Tresor label." - Dave Segal, The Stranger

"Aubrey Bramble’s spectral voice [is] the pitch-perfect soundtrack for an apocalyptic prom... Songs for empty cities, flashing lights, the rain turning into ice." - Nada Mucho

"Nearly equals Beach House for affecting, gothy/gauzy textures." - Kyle Fleck, The Stranger

"A welcome mixture of mystery and magic—some sort of love child of Phantogram and Purity Ring—and it results in an audio sensation that’s equal parts beautiful and heartbreaking. " - Seattle Weekly

"Highly recommended for fans of Memoryhouse, Blouse, and Seapony." - aperfectmidnightworld

"Beautiful atmospheric music from this Seattle duo, with ethereal female vocals floating over luscious soundscapes. Inspired by Cranes and Cocteau Twins, their music has a sad and ghostly edge." - Bandcamp

Tonight! We will be playing for one night only as Carmilla, Golden Gardens' extra witchy evil twin. New music? Maybe! Come out!! 💜👻💜

Surprise! We're playing this magical event Saturday night under the secret name of Carmilla. Come out and get witchy with us! Lots of magic to get lost in - live tattooing, mystical vendors, burlesque dancers - it's gonna be a night of wonderment for sure.

The bracing delight of Golden Gardens’ ‘Reign’

Thanks for the killer review of Reign, NorthWest Music Scene!! If you wanna hear this album in action, come out to Barboza Friday night! It's gonna be magic. This is an album of gorgeous sounds and potent thoughts that you get more out of with successive listen, as you’re drawn deeper and deeper into the magical, mystical, ominous world that Golden Gard…

Hey Seattle friends! We are playing this fancy show Friday night! That's 3 days from now!! It's kind of a big deal and we'd love to see all of our local loves there (assuming y'all are free). Can you help us fill Barboza with your magic? We know you haven't seen us play with our new drummer yet, so get at this!!! Carl is basically amazing. #realfeels #goodmusic #partytimes
