It was back in June, with the release of his debut single She Dreams Of Flying, that we were first introduced to the dynamic synth-pop sounds of Bouclette (real name Ben Crook). In an incredibly short amount of time, the Melbourne-based artist has crafted a sound that feels completely boundless.
Now, with the release of a new music video for his second single Euphoria, Crook continues to establish his penchant for crafting incredibly punchy and addictive synth-driven audio gems. If you’re not already familiar with this name, we strongly recommend you change that.
On his new video for Euphoria, Melbourne-based artist Bouclette teams with Baxter Avalon to deliver an audio-visual spectacle worthy of its title.
The new video is an all-out eruption of colour and explosive musical chops. With Bouclette on drums and frequent collaborator Baxter Avalon (real name Lilith Lane) on synth and vocals, the new clip perfectly captures the bright spirit of the track. As neon-coloured cinematogrpahy blends seamlessly with flourescent animations, the video becomes increasingly difficult to look away from.
The song itself is an energetic blend of synth-pop and rock, and sees Crook and Lane fuse their own distinctive musical styles into one unstoppable force.
These still may be early days for this Melbourne musician, but judging by the quality of everything we’ve seen and head so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more great material. In the meantime, do yourself a favour and watch the new video for Euphoria above.
