Savage Garden were an Australian pop duo, consisting of the incredibly talented singer, Darren Hayes and multi-instrumentalist, Daniel Jones.

The song, ‘I Want You’, was released in the UK in 1997, and it was the first single taken from their debut, self-titled album. It’s heavily rooted in synthpop and pop rock sounds, which at the time, set them apart from many other acts.

I’ve been a fan of this pair for years and feel their demise is a great loss to the music world, but their recent release, The Singles is available for physical purchase or download, and it’s well worth it!

When it was released, the song reached Number 11 in the UK charts, but the pair had great successes throughout their career. Since then, Darren Hayes has gone on to release a whole string of solo albums but is currently taking a break from music.
