Our video of the day today comes from Billie Marten: ‘Garden of Eden’ is taken from her third album Flora Fauna due out May 21 on IMPERIAL Music/Fiction Records.
“It’s a song of growth, and competition to evolve as individuals in an increasingly suffocating and vacuous society. I liked the idea of humans growing up like tomatoes in the greenhouse, needing water and oxygen and space, but not getting any of it. The choruses act as a burst of relief to allow space to breathe and to express that want of living right. This was one of the first pivotal songs for me as the general sentiment breeds happiness and optimism, which is something I wasn’t particularly familiar with thus far.”.
