“They melt like mist, the solid lands”
(YourDigitalWall Editorial):- Westhill, Aberdeenshire Aug 19, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – “They melt like mist, the solid lands, Like clouds they shape themselves and go.”
In Memoriam, by Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Forgotten Garden’s new Single Memoriam will be released on 2nd September 2022
“Memoriam” is a sad and poignant Indie Rock song that takes its inspiration from the tragic experience of those unable to comfort a loved one at their passing. This anguish is reflected in the chorus “too late to show that I cared, still cared” This situation, of course, was particularly prevalent, during the Covid lockdowns when even the attendance of funerals became problematic. Grief and loss, in general, permeate the song.
The track features a strong bass line, energetic drums, and a wistful synth sound that revolve around a constellation of sad, melodic guitar riffs. Soaring above all this is the melancholic and powerful voice of Inês Rebelo. Woven together, the instruments and strong vocals create a powerful Indie song that explores a tragic facet of modern life
Forgotten Garden is an Indie band (duo+guests) with dark wave tendencies. Their songs are generally sad, poignant, and haunting.

After spending many years in Scotland, Inês now lives in her native Portugal. Danny lives in the north of Scotland. They started working together in 2019.
The music of Forgotten Garden is mostly inspired by post-punk bands such as The Cure and Joy Division and earlier bands like The Doors. Inês’s vocals are influenced by some of her favorite artists like Florence Welch, Lana Del Rey, Chelsea Wolfe, Weyes Blood, Kelsey Lu, and Warpaint. In fact, Forgotten Garden has been described as Lana Del Rey meets The Cure!!
