All Get Out – No Bouquet

    All Get Out has been around for some time now; their 2011 release The Season (Favorite Gentlemen) put them on the map.  They are a duo from South Carolina that has really showcased their musicianship with their third release No Bouquet (Rude Records/Easy Vision) where they have created an infectious album that thrives on the dynamic of keeping things simple, creating their own Indie Alternative sound full of soul.

    The album is finely curated to be an enjoyable listen from beginning to end. Firing it up with ‘Rose’ subtly lingers into your ears with honest lyricism and prepares you for what is yet to come as the imagery in Nathan Hussey’s lyrics are admirably poignant. ‘Survive’ follows the first track and it is evident that Hussey wants you to feel what this patient is going through. The same can be said about ‘Namesake’ and ‘However Long’ where he really dives into an emotion that can only be carried through the honest songwriting. The music’s emotion really parallels the words and the seriousness is felt with the existentially crafted ‘God Damn’. It’s a nice touch as the duo tackles faith in this captivating piece.

    The energy is geared up with single ‘Self Repair’, with its upbeat guitars and the palm-muting riff and with the intensity of ‘Archives’, where the backbeat is choppy and catchy but the chorus will have you with your fist up in the air. ‘First Contact’ brings the level back down with its coy introduction to settle you into a melodramatic verses and hand-clapping snare hits while last track ‘Trip’ is a pleasing guitar-driven aura that mixes in a dash of aggression and a simple Southern drawl.

    Throughout the album, there are soothing vocal lines and enchanting choruses that keep listeners fascinated as No Bouquet is a deeper look into a band worth your attention. It is a deeper portrayal of problems we have all faced wrapped in All Get Out’s version of Southern emo. All Get Out reassures listeners that honest relatable music is still out there. This duo is making sure of that.
