Style: Taken from their second EP, Songs About Aimee, Why Are We Wasting Our Time fuses ambient pop with larger house melodies that motors along above an infectious sonar beat. Picture Book are an immensely creative duo as is displayed by their attention grabbing aLIve concept shows where they rework and remix tracks on the go.
