Nearly 12 months on from Forgotten Garden’s debut EP the only way to mark the occasion is of course new music, ‘Jessica’ is the new offering and it’s clear that Forgotten Gardens have grown stronger and enhanced their sound.
The single in itself is polished with a well-crafted flair and the vocal display is powerful and impressive, which set a scene of real emotion pouring out of every pore of this record. It lends itself well to the rhythm provided by the guitar which you find yourself in a happy dream state chilled and relaxed.
Normally we hold our breath with a hint of panic when we see bands advancing over the 4 and a half minute mark with a single, but we didn’t need to with this song, they hold the momentum and energy well. It's a hypnotic storytelling path which makes you turn and walk down the road again for another listen.
