Having started their career in Manchester, Blossoms were propelled to fame after finishing fourth in the BBC Sound of 2016 competition. Since then they’ve had their single At Most a Kiss played regularly on Radio One and their single - and arguably best track on the new album - Charlemagne made Radio One’s ‘Track of the Day’.
Last Friday brought the release of the band’s self titled debut album and introduced a new chapter for the boys, bringing along with it the potential of a debut number one album. In some ways Blossoms are simply another indie pop band but with Tom Ogden’s haunting vocals and Myles Kellock’s imaginative use of all things futuristic they manage to make music to rival The Klaxons at their peak.
Another stand out track is Deep Grass, which could be mistaken for The Black Keys’ Turn Blue at first but it soon evolves and becomes it’s own masterpiece.
In this album Blossoms have encapsulated all that indie pop is, and more. With a summer of festivals and a headline tour in the autumn, this is a band that shows no signs of slowing down.
