Las Vegas, NV based rock band WICKED GARDEN has released the official music video for their new single, “Home, Too Far.” Written and directed by Dominick Muzio and Shawn Trojahn, the video for “Home, Too Far” was filmed by Stephy Hayward of Livewire Photography and edited by Nicholas Muzio at Die-Hearts Productions.
“This is a song about loss, and how you can never get back the time you have with someone once they are gone. And while the term “Home” refers to an afterlife or another plane of existence, it’s too far away for the people that have been left behind” – Dominick Muzio (Lead Singer/Guitarist)
“I was frustrated by not having written anything in a while. Then when I came up with this riff, I knew it had something. It was different from our other songs, but still sounded like us.” – Shawn Trojahn (Lead Guitarist)
Wicked Garden is an indie rock powerhouse from Las Vegas, Nevada. With their critically acclaimed debut cdPost Dystopian Leisure Music, Wicked Garden has amassed over half a million streams, in addition to physical and online sales that have seen them chart in countries such as Australia, France, and the UK. Their first single, “Already Gone,” hit number one on stations and charts around the world, with other album cuts being played and streamed in over 80 countries. Wicked Garden’s videos have been distributed worldwide as well. Wicked Garden’s music is a blend of 90’s era alternative and grunge, mixed in with the classic hard rock styles of the past to create a sound that is underrepresented in the music industry today, yet cuts across genres to appeal to fans of all types of rock music. The band is currently in production for the follow up to Post Dystopian Leisure Music with plans on releasing their new album in 2021.
Eras of music are often a cyclical/recycled beast – over the past few years, we’ve seen the nu-metal revival in the form of bands like Sylar and Issues, and the shoegaze/dream pop/grunge throwbacks of bands like Turnover, Pity Sex, and Superheaven (long live Daylight). You can comfortably put Georgia’s Lost Boy somewhere in the latter category – they’re certainly not the product of 1999. But what they are is somewhere between the guitar-driven shoegazy alt-rock of Swerverdriver/Ride/Hum, and the pop-punk of early Turnover, if such a midway point can be imagined. In other words, what Lost Boy is doing is a fairly unique take on the genre, setting feet in both camps instead of one or the other.
We’re stoked to be premiering their new track, “Cave In”, which you can find below. Their EP New Normal can be preordered as well – it’s out July 15th – and the band is having a release show to go along with it.
Exponent Manor is quickly becoming one of my favorite venues in Nashville. Aside from the fact that it’s someone’s house & that house shows are awesome, the close proximity of the band and the crowd is something that just can’t be matched. Don’t get me wrong, I certainly enjoy going to shows at all different venues, but any show that lacks a barrier and has no real stage ranks high on my list of favorites. There are multiple shows going on at Exponent every week and I’m fortunate to live nearby. Read on to hear about the bands that played last night!
