Garside was formed in early March of 2017 in Medan. An indie rock/alternative rock band by nature, the band is influenced by bands like Last Dinosaurs, Bombay Bicycle Club, Two Doors Cinema Club, Viola Beach, etc. Early formation was just a reunion of some of its members who each had their own band and project and had their own musical colors, then decided to form the band by combining their respective musical colors.
After a few changes in the members' lineup, Garside finally settled with their current formation of Rambe on Vocal, Afif on Guitar, Jeje on Guitar, Hafiz on Bass, and Arief on Drums.
In August 2017 Garside released its first single "PRETEND", followed by the second single "Swivel" in February 2018. Garside is also in the process of making an EP that will be released in the near future.
