Formed in Los Angeles, Bouquet set forth with a vision of pop songwriting combined with a minimal palette of analog electronic sounds. Both members originally hail from the San Francisco Bay Area, where guitarist Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs fronted the folk-pop outfit The Finches, while also working as a visual artist. Keyboardist Max Foreman has a background in experimental composition, and cofounded the instrumental trio Tenebre. The two have joined their technical and creative approaches to music-making, along with visual elements – including prints, sculptural objects, and projections – by Pennypacker Riggs.

Since 2013, Bouquet has gained increasing attention for their live performances supporting acts such as Geneva Jacuzzi, Ariel Pink, EMA, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Sonny and the Sunsets, Lori Goldston (Nirvana), Nite Jewel, and Mt. Eerie; playing at The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Night Court at Art Basel Miami; and All Tomorrow’s Parties Festival in the UK, curated by TV on the Radio.
