Week Starter – Strange Bouquets

Week Starter is our Monday column where we give you a new song to help you get on out of bed & help you power on through the working week.

“Mirrors” by Strange Bouquets comes on hot and heavy with drums and bass racing out of the gates before a vaguely middle-eastern sounding guitar lick leads us into the verses. As the first half of the song goes by the guitar morphs into a demented surf lick and it’s then you realize that the whole affair feels a bit like a modernized take on the classic Dead Kennedys sound. That is right up until the 2:40 mark when it drops into a Sabbath-esque doomy blues stomp that is as epic as it is unexpected. From the chugging coffee and rushing out the door madness of a Monday morning to the disassociated mid-afternoon feeling of yet another work week, this one has you covered.
