Bouquet: In A Dream 10" EP

Bouquet: In A Dream 10″ EP

Bouquet are an LA-based duo joining the ranks of Sales, Love Inks and other recent groups updating the pleasant, minimalist drum-machine pop sounds of Young Marble Giants. The group needs nothing more than vocals, guitar, keys and Casio-esque drum machines to put forth its catchy tunes. Sometimes you can’t argue with a soothing voice repeating the lyric “I wanna come to your house” over warm synths. “Falling” is another winner, starting out beatless and sounding like it’s gently falling, but gaining traction with a brisk beat. The EP’s shortest track, “Over Mountains”, is the most weightless, sounding like it’s flying rather than falling, but otherwise the EP sticks to pleasing drum machine beats.
