One of my absolute favorite bands, Blossoms, have just released their new EP Blown Rose. Blossoms are from Manchester and are made up of Tom Ogden (lead/guitar), Myles Kellock (keys/BV’s), Charlie Salt (bass/BV’s), Josh Dewhurst (lead guitar), and Joe Donovan (drums). Blossoms have been “blossoming” all over the UK with many big festivals including; Kendal Calling, Reading & Leeds, and T in the Park. Their EP was #10 on the UK’s Top 150 iTunes Charts (and #5 on iTunes Alternative Charts), beating Tame Impala’s newest album Currents, Florence and the Machine’s latest album, and more. The band also have a new headline UK tour, which you can purchase tickets here.
The four track EP starts out with Blown Rose, one of many people’s favorites because of the upbeat music and pick-me-up lyrics. It definitely shows you what sound they create with music, it’s interesting and different. I think that’s why so many people are loving them, because they have such a unique style. The second track is Madeleine, which is another outstanding song. The song starts off slow and jazzy, then it begins to have more of a psychedelic feel to it because of the keys and guitar. It’s a song that’ll have you singing along for sure. The next track is entitled Smoke and its guitar always has me dancing when I listen to it. Another jam from Blossoms.. what can I say, all of their songs are tunes. The last song on the EP is Stormy, and it is by far my favorite. The beauty of the song is truly unexplainable, you just need to have a listen for yourself. It’s an absolute class, “slow jam” type of song which I am a sucker for. The EP is only available in the UK, but I have change my iTunes store to the UK version to purchase.. which you can do here. I’ve also ordered the limited edition colored and signed 10″ vinyl (limited to 300 only) and you can order it here. Be on the lookout for Blossoms, because they will be getting big very soon!
