premiere: listen to Bouquet’s lovely debut EP In A Dream

BOUQUET // IN A DREAM

California "kaleidoscopic pop" duo Bouquet follow up one of the most dreamily beautiful tracks of the year with their haunting debut EP, In A Dream. From the warm and gently woozy opening track, to the jaunty/slightly creepy longing of "Come To Your House", the gorgeous, bittersweet melancholy of "Over the Mountains", and the lilting, romantic dream pop perfection of "Falling", it's a lean and lovely record that lulls, soothes, and renews in just under 20 minutes. In A Dream is out next week on limited 10" via Ulrike/Folktale Records. Listen:




Bouquet will play a record release show in Eagle Rock this weekend, followed by a handful of west coast dates in April; check those after the jump...
