Amuse recording artists La Bouquet have shared a new song titled “1990“, which can be heard now exclusively with All Things Go today. The song is taken from the band’s debut full length LP ‘Sad People Dancing’, which will be released March 29.
On the song, vocalist Bryan Sammis explains, “This song was written with my dear friend Nick Long in his garage. It was a hot day, I was hungover & I knew I wanted to work on something personal. I felt it was high time for something extremely introspective. Treating the writing session as therapy. Nick helped me push the boundaries of what I was scared to say and how I felt. The result is something that I am both deeply proud of & slightly nervous to release into the world. It is self-reflection without a filter. It is everything I’ve wanted to say. It’s who I am.”
La Bouquet, is a Los Angeles-based trio consisting of Bryan Sammis (formerly of The Neighbourhood), Jake Lopez and Drew Bruchs. The band craft a sound that siphons bedroom-rattling falsetto through post-punk soundscapes. It’s a striking blend that leaves the group existing between three worlds. The group have steadily gained critical acclaim since their inception.
The band will play a show on March 30, 2019, in Santa Barbara, CA @ Velvet Jones to hail the release of the song and their new LP. They are also confirmed to perform at The Hi Hat in LA on April 4th. Additional tour dates will be announced soon.
“Sad People Dancing” follows the 2018 releases of “Names Like Songs” and the Sunshine Sessions collection, which saw La Bouquetexperiment with acoustic interpretations of their 2017 EP Heavy Sunshine. Also appearing on Sad People Dancing are “Loveless” and “Loser Baby”, both singles featured on KROQ Locals Only.
Sad People Dancing is out March 29, 2019.
