It's been a stellar year for Blossoms so far, here's what you should know about the Stockport band.
Blossoms are made up of Tom Ogden (vocals), Charlie Salt (bass), Josh Dewhurst (lead guitar), Joe Donovan (drums), and Myles Kellock (keyboard).
The five-piece hail from Stockport, Greater Manchester.
Tom went to secondary school with Joe, who was also in a band with Charlie. They were later joined by Josh and Myles who were also in different bands at the time.
The band are named after a pub called Blossoms, which is situated on the corner of Bramhall Lane and Buxton Road in Stockport. Joe has previously said that when they passed the pub while on the bus, they said: “That’d be such a good name for a band”. The rest - as they say - is history...
Blossoms have already previously released four EPs in Bloom (2014), Blown Rose (2015) Charlemagne (2015), and At Most a Kiss (2016) - all before dropping their debut album. The band have also released huge, anthemic singles in Charlemagne, At Most A Kiss, Blown Rose and Getaway, plus have just released This Is The Moment, their collab with Chasing Status.
The Coral's James Skelly has been a huge champion of the Stockport five-piece, producing their 2015 Charlemagne EP and working on their debut LP. Elsewhere the band have been described as "pop-psych" and "psychedelic revival," but they've mostly put that down to wearing turtle necks...
Tom and co. have supported the likes of Kasabian, The Last Shadow Puppets and The Libertines.
Blossoms are heading out across Europe and will be playing dates in London, Bristol, Birmingham Liverpool and more throughout March. Plus, they're be playing a massive show at Manchester's Castlefield Bowl in July!
Tom recently said "I already have little song ideas where I think it would sound good as a call and response with a female singer." Maybe it could be 2017's big collaboration?
Blossoms released their eponymous debut LP on 19 August 2016 and scored a UK Not 1 with it. Not too shabby for a first outing.
