Since the release of their 2014 sophomore record, Dunes, Gardens & Villa have relocated from Santa Barbara to  Los Angeles and slimmed down from a three-piece to a duo. Despite the changes internally and otherwise, one thing has remained a constant: their knack for penning infectious indie pop. The latest incarnation of Gardens & Villa will be on display on Music For Dogs, their forthcoming album that’s slated to drop on August 21st via Secretly Canadian.

Produced by Jacob Portrait (Wampire, Bass Drum of Death), the LP is previewed this week with “Fixations”, a jubilant psych pop cut stuffed with swirling guitars and chirpy piano. Listen in below.

Music For Dogs Tracklist:
01. Intro
02. Maximize Results
03. Fixations
04. Everybody
05. Paradise
06. Alone In The City
07. General Research
08. Express
09. Happy Times
10. Jubilee
11. I Already Do

In support, the two-piece has lined up a North American fall tour.
