Los Jardines de Bruselas is the recording moniker of Buenos Aires musician Ezequiel de la Parra, through which, as his label Bad Pop points out, he works heavily in the framework of pop, with some heavy production that they rightly indicate falls short of the insipidness that some "electropop" risks. That overarching pop structure, a driving beat, with Parra's freewheeling composition easily justify his name, "the Gardens of Brussels"; a huge network of famously elaborate and organized but intensely varied local parks. His new single "Why Are We Here?" comes via Bad Pop, making it Parra's first release since his debut album Floating in Dreams from early 2011.
