Linnea’s Garden is a glam punk trio from Boston, MA. Channeling elements of indie rock, new wave, grunge, power pop, and dance punk, the band has wowed audiences across New England and New York with their brilliant songs and flashy vibes. The brainchild of singer/songwriter/guitarist Linnea Herzog (formerly of PowerSlut), bassist Amy Galaviz, and drummer Hands, Linnea’s Garden combines melodic riffs, danceable grooves and introspective lyrics into an energy that’s all their own.
Linnea’s Garden’s first LP, Fashion Show, was released April 1, 2022 on Red on Red Records. The album’s lead single, “Looking,” is about searching for an escape, putting in the work, and doing the thing instead of finding reasons not to. These ideas represent the logical extension of Linnea’s Garden’s 2021 debut EP Nowhere Friday Nights, a joyous celebration of art, science and love. But with another year and the band’s first live shows under their belt, their sound has veered outside the lines of Nowhere Friday Nights’ straightforward power-pop-punk approach. The ‘60s backbeats have evolved into ‘70s disco beats, with an emphasis on heavier grooves and deeper themes. Hippie bell-bottoms, disco glitter, grunge flannel and combat boots, androgynous skinny ties, face gems, smeared eyeliner and mesh crop tops – Fashion Show wears it all. Staying true to their first single, they do it ‘cuz they like to do it.
Linnea’s Garden was pent-up and productive in 2020, self-releasing 3 singles and videos: the glam, gender-bending “I Wanna Try On Yr Clothes,” subversively sexual “Like the Patriarchy,” and apocalyptic rocker “Superspreader.” In March 2021, Linnea’s Garden released their Nowhere Friday Nights EP, whose singles “Non-Dramatic Breakup Song,” “Science and You,” and “Replacement” garnered worldwide airplay and critical acclaim. Since their live debut in June 2021, Linnea’s Garden is proud to have shared the stage with many talented acts such as Screaming Females, Freezepop, Brandie Blaze and Melissa Ferrick. Offstage, Dr. Linnea Herzog is an internationally recognized neuroscientist and electrophysiologist whose work has been published in Current Biology and The Journal of Neuroscience.
“As the band moves from indie rock to disco to funk to post-punk, there’s no whiplash from this genre-bending. It feels seamless.“Jammerzine
