“From beginning to end, the album moves without obvious hits, but as a rounded whole you can sink into and stay in for several days. Each note is in its rightful place, each melody is catchy, each moment contains something that could finally push Haiku Garden outside of Slovenia’s borders.” MUZIKA.HR
Muzika.hr placed their debut album “Where If Not Now”, released via KAPA Records in October, in second place on its list of the best regional albums in 2018. All reviews came back highly positive, the young shoegaze band’s album release gig in Ljubljana was sold out. But a lot had happened even before that. Over the past year, their EP “Waver” took them across Slovenia and Europe, from Poznan to Liverpool, from Seville to Vienna. Smudgy guitars, dreamy vocals, their own vision of shoegaze and noisy outbursts make up an addictive audio image, coloured in live by the fifth member, hidden behind the projectors.
