Vacant Gardens: "Shorebirds"

Vacant Gardens is the new musical venture from longtime Autumn Roses favorite Jem Fanvu and Glenn Donaldson, and “Shorebirds” is a gently-recalled memory in brocade and their absolutely-heavenly debut single. Its wisped, patterned melodies are kind and calming. The track is taken from Under The Bloom, their forthcoming debut LP, one they will release through Tall Texan Records in the Spring.
