The tragic loss of friends and colleagues Viola Beach delayed the release of this highly awaited EP, but the tracks released today are a fitting tribute to another one of music’s rising stars. Blossoms have caught the eyes and ears of plenty fans recently, and their sold out date on Saturday (27th) at the Albert Hall is set to be a great night. Truth be told, there’s going to be a lot of Blossoms on here in the coming months.
The lead single, At Most A Kiss was released back in January and got a brilliant reaction earning airplay on a number of major UK radio stations. It follows the synth-grooves that the band are so keen to uphold and contrasts a moody bassline with pop-rock lead guitar and unique vocals.
Fourteen chimes underpin the whole song, synth vocals, unpredictability of vocals, “fourteen days to make it right”
Wretched Fate upbeat, 80s lead guitar, tick-tock drums, melodic hook, “fall for electric storm” “I’ve been waiting to find you, wretched fate”
Track 4 Misery, slow and gentle, keyboard strong, lyrically stunning, paints the picture of a moonlit street, closes the EP brilliantly
Three pretty different songs, versatility and potential. Number 1 on iTunes chart, knocking Adele off top spot.
“Blossoms new EP. They supported The Charlatans loads last year & played some ace sets at Tim Peaks. Go @BlossomsBand”
They will again, no less at Kendal Calling 2016
