Garden City Movement announce their debut album ‘Apollonia’, set for release on 16th March 2018. The announcement comes with the release of new single ‘Foreign Affair’ and tour dates across Europe.
The trio of Roy Avital, Yoav Saar and Johnny Sharoni produce a blend of sounds drawn from their diverse cultural worlds; ranging from art-pop to experimental house to horizontally-aligned vibes. Since surfacing at the close of 2013 with their breakout track ‘Move On’, Garden City Movement have released ‘Entertainment’ and ‘Bengali Cinema’ EPs, the ‘Modern West’ 12” in collaboration with The Vinyl Factory, climbed the Hype Machine Popular Chart with multiple singles, recorded live sessions for Boiler Room, Majestic Casual and FACT, opened for Bonobo, Caribou, Alt-J and played all over the world. The band’s music video for ‘Move On’ received a nomination for Best Music Video at the LA Film Festival, won “Best Video of The Year” at the MTV Israel Music Awards and the video for ‘She’s So Untouchable’ screened at Raindance Film Festival in London.
Recording through 2017 at their studio in Tel Aviv, Garden City Movement took the time to explore their sound as a band. From the combination of dream-like vocals and cinematic-RnB in singles ‘Slightly All The Time’ ‘Before I Fall’ and ‘A Means To An End’ to the leftfield four-four of ‘Mediterranea’ and ‘Sans Titre’ or the ethereal jazz of ‘I Knew Before I Met Her (That One Day I Would Lose Her)’ and worldly influences of the title track – the heightened craft in their production is firmly felt across the album’s 18 tracks.
