TRÈS OUI: Singles Going Nowhere: 12” EP

Mar 20, 2018

Austin’s Très Oui opted to open their first release by letting the bass shine—a decision I both welcome and find misleading. After eight seconds of the aforementioned borderline-“funky” bass, the remaining sixteen or so minutes are pure indie pop, complete with hints at some of the best parts of the ‘80s: strong bass, jangly guitars, and shimmery vocals. Listen to on repeat: “Prince of Pop.” Dance to: “Party Planner.” Skip: “Honolulu.” If you can’t catch Belle And Sebastian on their next tour, maybe this will soothe your soul. –Nicole X (Square Of Opposition)
