Richmond, VA’s alternative rock band Telltale have released a new single today in the form of a lyric video for “Bouquet”. The track lives on their upcoming sophomore EP Timeless Youth, out April 26th via SharpTone Records.
“‘Bouquet’ is about not being enough for someone and coming to terms with that reality. At the time this song was written, I was deeply struggling with my sexuality and furthermore my ability to be physically intimate with others due to past experiences. “I’ll never be your bouquet” is my own way of saying, “there are things about me that won’t always be pretty, there are parts of me that are quite literally wilted and dying, and I won’t numb myself out or stop showing certain feelings just to look nice for your display.” – John Carter (vocals)
