The Garden is an ever evolving duo from Orange County, California. Established in 2011 by twin brothers Fletcher and Wyatt Shears, they also created the term “Vada Vada” to represent their music and other endeavours.
Typically seen live playing drums and electronics, Fletcher can also be seen front and center on vocals, belligerently performing alongside his brother, Wyatt.
Wyatt consistently takes position of lead vocals and bass in the duo whilst performing and can be seen simultaneously moving in un-choreographed bizarre patterns.
Touring globally since 2012 they have become known for their energetic, aggressive and off the wall performances.
To date the twins have released four EP’s, two full length LP’s and are currently working on an LP for release in 2018…
The Tijuana Panthers got their name from the little black ceramic panther that was a present from their neighbor Max Baker—yes, the Max Baker who they named their first album after, and who deserves a bio all his own—and they got their sound from that strange place where punk bands crash into pop music and come out the other side, bristling with hooks and hitting three-part harmonies almost by happy accident.
Even the Beach Boys were once a garage band, and after them came the waves of kids playing rock ‘n’ roll somewhere between the surf and the surface streets. Then when punk showed up in the ‘70s, it was just an adjustment in hairstyle and speed. The Buzzcocks did this a whole hemisphere away, the Real Kids and the Modern Lovers did it on the other side of the country, and the Crowd and the Simpletones did it just a few towns over. And now Tijuana Panthers come striding proudly out of their hometown of Long Beach, California.
