Finding Solace in “In Memoriam” by Forgotten Garden

In the EP “In Memoriam” by Forgotten Garden, a seamless tapestry of sorrow and beauty is woven, creating an evocative sonic landscape that lingers like mist over a forgotten churchyard. The indie outfit – with Inês Rebelo’s captivating vocals and Danny Elliott’s eclectic instrumentation – crafts dark wave dirges that cradle the heart in its hour of grief.

Each track is a haunting ode to loss, pulling at our universal cloak of mourning, yet finding solace in the shared experience. From the ethereal embrace of Rebelo’s almost angelic tones to Elliott’s melancholic guitar strings and somber keyboards, “In Memoriam” dances on the precipice between this world and another—a Celtic folk-rock spirit bound in an acoustic shroud.

The standout collaboration with Michael Rattray illuminates ‘Road to Silence’, lending voices from different corners of despair singing for redemption. Together they conjure echoes reminiscent of The Cranberries’ Dolores O’Riordan paired with shades of Nick Cave’s philosophical introspection.

“In Memoriam”, while steeped heavily in themes as perennial as winter’s chill – making clever nods towards Christmas but twisted into a bitter carol – provides not just reflection but also comfort. It wraps listeners in camaraderie amidst sorrow: we are alone together under its canopy.

This four-track EP serves both as eulogy and healing incantation—inviting us not only to dwell upon losses past but also glimpsing hope on horizons new. Like passing through shadow into faint firelight, Forgotten Garden ensures we don’t walk their memory lane unaccompanied.
