The two Los Angeles musical miscreants La Bouquet carve out “emotional songs you can dance to.” Siphoning bedroom-rattling R+B falsetto through post-punk soundscapes, the duo—Bryan Sammis (formerly of The Neighbourhood ) and Jake Lopez —exist between two worlds.
“Obviously, there’s an eighties influence, but there’s also a big R+B influence,” says Bryan. “At the same time, we also come from a punk ethos. We don’t want everything to sound too perfect. We just want every note to evoke some sort of emotion.”
