Psych-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. The band have enjoyed support slots with Gaz Coombes, The Courteeners, The Charlatans and Paul Weller on their huge tour of the UK, which included a sell-out show at London’s Barfly in Camden – as well as playing the BBC Introducing and PRS Foundation Stage at SXSW.
Following festival appearances at The Great Escape, T in the Park and Festival No.6, the band’s single, ‘Cut Me and I’ll Bleed’ reached number 7 in The Official Charts Company’s first ever UK Vinyl Chart. The quintet hit the road this autumn, calling at The Institute on Sat 17th October.
“Manchester’s Blossoms offer a lighter take on psychedelia, one that’s steeped in classic British pop songwriting” – NME
“Not content with being lumped in with Manc music’s current psych revival, Stockport five-piece Blossoms have opted to invent their very own sub-genre: Ethereal Nostalgic Sonance.” – Manchester Evening News
