New LA-based avant-pop duo Amoureux just released a new track from their forthcoming debut EP, Never Young As Tonight. The song premiered on PopMatters, who called it “a slice of bass-heavy, hazy pop” and went on to describe the music as romantic dream-pop but clarifying that “A remarkable distinctive for the duo, however, is that rather than getting caught up on the treble end of the sonic spectrum, as many dream-pop bands do, the duo emphasizes rhythm instruments, particularly Holiday J’s distinctive bass playing.” Stream and share it via Soundcloud below!
