Garden City Movement is a Tel Avivian-based electronic music project. The three produce sweet hypnotic beats to ground floor bass heavy tracks.
Signed with BLDG5 records, Garden City Movement first made waves last fall with the release of their debut EP „Entertainment“, which garnered early press champions as numerous Hype Machine influential blogs, Pitchfork, Clash, The FADER, Stereogum and FACT which created a short documentary about “The rising stars of Tel Aviv.”
With videos reaching 1M hits and screenings at the LA film festival, GCM scored support slots for acts such as Alt-J, Cults, SOHN & Rufus and their debut appearance on the Boiler Room. The trio intensively toured Europe and was on festival bills such as Primavera, Pukkelpop, Glastonbury & Fusion festival.
„Bengali Cinema“, the second EP, continued Entertainment‘s media praise. They dominated Hype Machine’s top 3 for three days straight with Terracotta, and were featured in the vast blogosphere as “The Band to Watch.” Radio stations such as BBC6, KEXP & Sirius XM (to name a few) picked up tracks from both EP’s as well as reaching #21 on CMJ’s RPM chart.
In April 2015, the band teamed up with The Vinyl Factory and released “Modern West”, Garden City Movement’s 3rd and final EP in the trilogy. The Vinyl Factory encompasses a record label that worked before with artists such as xx, Massive Attack and Roisin Murphy. In the following time, the band signed to Night Time Stories, Late Night Tales sister label for original artist productions, and released its first full album „Apollonia“ in March 2018.
