Biography

With comparisons to Arcade Fire, Radiohead, The National, and Idlewild, the Backyards sound is eclectic and multifaceted. They blend shimmering violin, guitars, and keyboards over a driving, pounding rhythm section with dual lead vocalists. Backyards songs are known for their atmosphere and ability to be both dark and light, powerful and optimistic.

“It may be a mouthful and a half trying to describe their sounds but it’s what makes them so unique and a great live act. It didn’t matter what kind of music you were into, the whole crowd stopped and listened to these guys who were simply entertaining and professional.”
(Holly Senior, Leeds Uncut)

Their 4-track debut EP If You’re Scared is a lush, detailed representation of their ambitious and promising talent. Recorded on vintage analogue equipment with Bruce Wood at Touchwood Studios in Leeds, it showcases thoughtful songwriting over dynamic compositions. It was released digitally on 1 February 2012 and includes 3 extra tracks from a live on-the-air BBC Introducing session on BBC Radio Leeds.

Another act by the name Backyards is a solo muli-instrumentalist Marc Devidal / all instruments, with a wide array of synths, and as far as I know, one LP release so far, 2Eden, which is progressive electronic music.
