Blossoms RELEASE THEIR DEBUT SINGLE, "BLOW" ON OCTOBER 20th

BLOSSOMS RELEASE THEIR DEBUT SINGLE, “BLOW” ON OCTOBER 20th VIA SKELETON KEY RECORDS

THE BAND EMBARK ON A HEADLINE UK TOUR ON OCTOBER 14TH

“Manchester’s Blossoms offer a lighter take on psychedelia, one that’s steeped in classic British pop songwriting” – NME

“Their effortless, flowing, woozy, guitar pop is perfect” – Louder Than War

 

“We want to be heard by everyone… James Stewart’s rabbit Harvey, Echo & the Bunnymen, Frank from Donnie Darko, at school discos, office parties, on the radio … everywhere. We want to be as mainstream as Will Smith, as great as The Smiths and as uplifting as Mr Smith Goes To Washington. We wear black on the outside but black isn’t how we feel on the inside. Our dark clothing is, in part, a reaction to Jacamo & ‘banter’.” – Blossoms, 2014

 

Psyche-pop riffs, vocal melodies, a film noir meets 60s aesthetic, a range of audible references from Arctic Monkeys via Abba to The Doors – Blossoms are Stockport’s newest (and arguably finest) musical export.

Blossoms’ brand new track, “Blow” is released on October 20th via The Coral’s James Skelly’s label – Skeleton Key Records. Skelly & Rich Turvey produced

The Liverpool / Manchester collaboration came about after Skelly saw one of the band’s early tracks, “You Pulled A Gun On Me” and invited them to his studio.  The band said:

“James Skelly from The Coral saw it [You Pulled A Gun On Me], loved it and was like, ‘You’s are f***ing boss. Come & jam with me’. When the man who who’s written some of the greatest guitar tunes in the last 10 years, invites you down the M62 to go to his house for tea, first you pinch yourself and then you ask, ‘do you want us to bring some dessert?’ and get down there. So we went to meet him on the Wirral & he ended up producing this, our debut single, in Liverpool.”

All five band members; Tom Ogden (Vocals/Guitar), Charlie Salt (Bass), Josh Dewhurst (Guitar), Joe Donovan (Drums) & Myles Kellock (Keys) live in Stockport and all played in several different local bands until, in their words, they “formed a, sort of, Stockport supergroup”.

The band made the art-house inspired video for Blow themselves, on a shoestring budget of £60.  “We wanted to make the video ourselves so we shot it in the warehouse where we rehearse and built a set and got a smoke machine, £60 later we had Blow … like Hitchcock if he was from Offerton… Check it out and remember that from little cars grow big bands.”
