“Garden Of Eden” is the first single off of Billie Marten’s upcoming release Flora Fauna, set to be released on May 21 , 2021. An intriguing track that grows in intensity, “Garden Of Eden” is a stellar glimpse into Marten’s dynamic and intricate music.
Beginning with an intro that pairs a deep bass rhythm with Marten’s light, striking vocals, the hypnotic tune slowly builds with light percussion and subtle vocal harmonies. The verses lull you into a trance before the chorus envelops you with swirling, ambient harmonies and glowing instrumentation. Suddenly, you find yourself in a perfectly intricate web of optimistic, positive tones as she sings “I wanna feel alive, garden of eternal sunshine”. The bridge offers a twist with a key modulation that creates a disorienting, dreamy scene before returning to the chorus and leaving you on a lingering, pensive note.
