[gair-ish, gar-]
Garish is an Austrian alternative rock band. After having asserted themselves in the alternative scene inside and outside Austria's borders with their first two records "amaurose pur." and "wo die nacht erzaehlt vom tag", their third album "Absender auf Achse" gained favorable press and fan reaction. Despite German lyrics, it is said that their emotional style of music is their "real language".

The band was nominated for the Austrian music award "Amadeus" three times (2001, 2003, 2005).

The band's name is an English adjective meaning dazzling, stridently coloured or excessively ornamented, gaudy, ostentatious, tastelessly showy, tacky or in raucously poor taste.
