Zero 7’s live performances have the air of a group sharing some music they like with a bunch of friends, whilst still being musically excellent - the sort of gigs that enhance listening to their albums forever afterwards.

Note on “The Garden”s interpretation: Henry & Sam don’t want the album’s title to be confused. Taken from the album artwork - a series of collages designed by a friend - also entitled “The Garden”, the duo are keen that the album’s meaning is not lost in translation.
