Bouquet is a kaleidoscopic pop duo from Los Angeles, CA consisting of Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs and Max Foreman. The two set out to create a uniquely inviting, immersive sound, intoning delicate vocal harmonies to a rising, ghostlike mass of guitar, trembling synthesizer, and pulsations of early rhythm machines. Lyrics alternate between painterly portraits out of time and devastatingly simple pop tenacity to delightful effect. Bouquet's music echoes undefinable post-punk wonders Young Marble Giants and This Mortal Coil, synth heroes Cluster, and the dulcet sensibilities of Sibylle Baier and Sandy Denny.
