[REVIEW] Blossoms – Blown Rose

Jessica Boyle

Blossoms are a 5-piece indie band, formed in Stockport, Greater Manchester. The band recently finished fourth place on the BBC’s Sound of new music list – they were one of only two guitar bands on the list.

Releasing a debut album in 2016 the band were quick to become number 1 in the charts, they also have tons of air time on the radio.  

Blown Rose is a single released from the number one self-titled album ‘Blossoms’. Sounding musically similar to the likes of Cage the Elephant, Catfish and the Bottlemen and Bipolar Sunshine, the song has a happy sounding vibe to it. I had never really listened to Blossoms before, despite hearing nothing but praise for the band, however Blown Rose had me hooked from the first time I heard it on the radio. This song has me dancing along from the very beginning. The band have a refreshing, vintage sound to them. I think people will appreciate their work, meaning their future can only be bright.

Falling for a band after hearing just one song is pretty rare for me, however I’m excited by this band and for what more is to come from them.

Blossoms have a UK tour planned for the end of the year, alongside a massive summer gig supporting The Courteeners in 2017.
